: Tippet Question?

Has anyone ever used expired Fluoro Carbon leader material? Personally, I don't see a difference.

It's worth the $8 to buy new stuff....

How many pieces did that rod become after you whacked the tree behind you? :hihi:

As long as it hasn't been left out in the sun it should be fine. I've noticed that my flouro lines become very brittle after a couple of months of fishing.

My tippet's fine year to year, as long as I don't catch anything but micros.:redface:

If stored properly the stuff will be fine. If unsure of what properly is, replace it.

I figured there wouldn't be a problem.

In the photo I was trout fishing and snagged the tree on my back cast. Heard a noise that startled me.

Looks like that cast could have been a disaster!

Should have used the roll instead and maybe saved a tree!:chuckle:
