Leader and Tippet Life Span
OK it has been a "few" years since I have been fly fishing and I still have most of my gear and really don't want to replace anything I don't have to. I know I have to buy new fly line, however do I really need to replace all my tippet material and leaders I still have? What is the lifespan on these? One of my leaders does say best if used by 5/03. I seriously think that is only a year after I bought it. I have tested what I have and it seems to have the original strength. I don't want to sound cheap but I dont want to throw away over a $100 of items if it can still be used.
Well, I aint always right but I've never been wrong.....
