Ok... The truth is I was lazy and grabbed my wife's rod and made it a mess (she is a fly fisher as well).. I am a guy she is a gal.. I don't care about the looks she does.... If I don't clean it up I owe her a new rod and hopefully a reduced week sleeping out in the camper.. If I was going to buy a new rod I would do it for me.. :^)
PS.. thanks for all the input. I will try the cleaning on an old one first.... Then her's. I will update everybody on my sucesses.. and if I can sleep back in the house...
