Default silk fly lines

I have two old silk fly lines that are sort of petrified. Can these lines be rejuvenated? It`s not likely I will use them, but I am interested in them from an historical point of view.

Yes you can. I'm currently unable to thoroughly look for the tutorial on the classic forum. If I get a chance tonight I'll find it for you. But there is a very hefty tutorial on how to do so. Seemed like quite a bit of effort but from what I'm told its worth it.
