In the past few months, we’ve posted a great new video series called “Getting Started in Fly Fishing,” from Brian Flechsig of Mad River Outfitters in Columbus, Ohio. Now, they’ve launched a new series called “Q&A.” It’s a pretty self-explanatory title, methinks.

In this episode, Flechsig answers the question “Do leaders and tippet have an expiration date?” So, if you buy a spool of 4X, how long will it last before you have to replace it? Flechsig’s answer is illuminating: it’s less about time and more about exposure to UV light. Keep your leader and tippet materials out of the sun, and you’ll get more out of them.
