What Good Anglers DON'T Do!

The Sportsman's Voice
 
Fishing with old line on your spinning reel or baitcaster is like driving on bald tires—in the rain. And, yes, breaking off a giant fish can be as traumatic as skidding through an intersection against a red light. That's why serious anglers all follow one simple rule: don't fish old line. Watch this and learn how to tell when to change your line!

Sunlight, moisture, extreme heat or cold, brush, rocks and dock pilings can seriously damage fishing line, turning it into something with the strength of a boiled spaghetti noodle. So, if you haven't done it already, take the time to fill your reels with fresh line before hitting the water in earnest.

Besides fishing a line that will actually bring that trophy to the net, side benefits include longer and more accurate casts, and less hassle with line-twist. Check out these videos on how to properly load your spinning or baitcasting reel.
