Re: Tippet material longevity?
I too have some leader tying material that is old enough to go to school and it is fine (I treat it "like a mushroom"). The 3X> that gets used more seems to last 3+ years no problem and then...its empty. As said above; no material should be discarded into the environment. I do use fluoro but in the salt only; I vastly prefer the properties of mono trout fishing. Oh, by the way, that bit of writing that says the pound test rating on the spool, they make that number up for marketing purposes.
