Another thing that can cause the braid to break down is salt water. If you’re fishing in salt water, make sure to rinse your line with fresh water after you’re done fishing and before you put it away. And finally, avoid stretching your line too much – this can also lead to deterioration.
To prolong the life of your braided fishing line, make sure to rinse it off with fresh water after each use and store it in a dry place. You can also treat the line with a UV protectant to help shield it from the sun’s harmful rays.
This happens more quickly if the line is exposed to UV light or if it’s stored in a hot, humid environment. Braided fishing line should be replaced regularly (every few weeks or months, depending on how often it’s used) in order to ensure safe and effective use.
That said, the individual strands in braided fishing lines can become frayed over time if not properly cared for, which can lead to reduced strength and decreased performance.
