Re: How to Maintain your Fly Rod
Hello Fly Fishing Friends,
My fishing equipment is a part of my hobby "Fly Fishing" and I like to have the feeling that my rods and reels are in perfect conditions. Because of that I clean up my rod, reel and line after every fishing day. For that I use a silicone oil which has a high viscosity. With that oil I have imbued a smal cloth, which I already use since nearly twenty years. It is right, that on surface which were in contact with silicone sticks no glue or other material, but if this would be necessary, you can sandpaper that area carefully to get a wettable surface.
Also at the water I pay attention that my reel and rod never lay in the dirt to keep them clean.
Best regards from Germany,
