Not as often as the tackle company's would have you believe..

Was listening to the Carp Society's pod cast with Chris Yates today. He last changed his line ten years ago..

There are no set rules, it depends on your fishing situations. Obviously if your fishing is mainly under arm flicks and 50 yard lobs with very little in the way of snags and weed your line will last a long time.

I change my line as little as humanly possible, braid is still the stuff I've had on since 2005, I tend to use fluorocoated copolymer and that doesn't seem too degrade anywhere near as quickly as mono, that's been on for years, the light floating monos on my floater setup need changing about once every couple of years, I strength test them all at the beginning of the year.

Anglers National Line Recycling Scheme

Bin Locations

Great scheme which I will be using when I get a significant amount of line to recycle as its a 10 mile journey to my nearest bin

Once a year on my main rods, it usually get pretty battered in a particular weedy water, and like most, i often cut off a fair bit each time.

If I'm honest, I don't often change the line on my quivertip rods etc, I hardly use them and never seems an issue.

I've also had some GR60 on a second set of carp rods for 3 years, I used them up the river last year and got 3 fish in big sets of pads, all of which came out and none snapped off!

With mono Normally twice a year for me if I'm fishing regularly. My line gets rubbed over gravel, weed, occasionally even boats (blooming idiots deciding to come into the bank so close with my rod tips under water they catch the line).
It does occasionally need the end cutting off as it gets fragged.

If fishing less often, then I only change the line once a year.


My fluoro line as it needs it in relation to how it feels; whether rubbed up against snags or 'gone off'.

The UV in sunlight does degrade mono although not fluorocarbon or braid. If you rods are stored in a dark shed or in a holdall, there's no reason to change it more than once a year. If you are that worried (and tight!), just cast in off in a field and spool it on backwards and the line hasn't seen any sunlight and you get 2 years worth!

+1, unless I have a reason to respool it more often, like if it's had a hard time like Josh says
After taking a break from fishing for 4 years I used the same line on the spools from the season before so it was at least 6 years old and that was lowly old Sensor, no problems. Then again it was stored in a dark place and I believe storage can affect it (UV Light etc).

I re spool once a year and treat my gear horrendously, your line will be time. Mine goes away caked in mud and ****

I have friends that have had line on over 5 years with no problems landing fish in the 40's
I usually change mine every year, there is hardly any left by the as I often strip the end 5 or more yards off after a fish due to damage by the mountains in the lake I fish.

No it'll be fine.
I've had line on spare spools that haven't been used for a few years and it's still ok.
