Default Replacing your line

How often do you take the time to replace the fishing line that is on your spool? Over time, the line does begin to degrade so it's important to check your line to see if it needs to be changed.

I don't have a fixed schedule of changing the line. I will change it when needed. Though, I always prepare one or two spools of spare line in my tackle box.

It really depends on where you store your line and how much wear and tear it's been through. There have been times when I've replaced the line once a year just because of the amount of fishing that I've done.

It depends on its condition. I always check my lines after an expedition and before going out with it and I always keep a spare with me.

I haven't had to change my line yet, since I've only been trout fly fishing a few times. I am sure that I will have to change it soon-- how long do lines usually last?

It really depends on how well you take care of your line. If you keep the line in room temperature away from harmful chemicals, the line should last a long time.
