I tried armor all many years ago, and it definitely seemed to shorten the life of my fly lines.
Then I started to used a product called glide. It worked pretty well, but thought it to be a little pricey.
Lately, I've been using cortland XL - and think it works fine.
I clean a line with it, and it's good for at least a weeks worth of hard fishing

I just picked up some fly line cleaner at Dicks. My buddy at work keeps telling me to clean my line before and after every outing and it will keep the line supple and moving freely thru the guides.

While I can understand his thinking, is that too much?

Hey Dave,

Isn't that the same video I posted a few posts back?

Yes it is. How much do you value your time? I know people who clean all their line and respool it after every outing. These are people whose time is worthless. I fish almost daily. If you figure as little as five minutes to clean your line, even at a rate of $30 per hour, you could replace your line a couple times a year for less cost. If you don't value your time, I would suggest cleaning it hourly.
