Default Re: what is best for cleaning fly line

I seldom have dirt issues but occasionally there is a flotation problem. This can be trouble plenty when casting with the two hand rod and a long line. If the line will not stay on the surface while you get ready to shoot it back to the target zone the cast will end up in a pile.

Thursday morning I had to stop fishing and take measures to get the line back in form. 'Old School here', I pulled out the whole 55' head and about 10' of running line, dried it by pulling through wool glove a few times then gave a good coat of Mucilin. Problem solved and the line was a pleasure to use after that.

Mucilin,

Ard
