I flyfish most of the time, but I still have 4 spinning reels that are spooled with
Fireline to which I tie on a 10-12 ft length of mono, which I effectively use as a
very long tippet, replacing it once it gets down to 5 feet or so. I have several
friends who (now) do the same thing: the Fireline will last a long, long time.
