Thumbs up Re: Ice off

I watched a video by Rio on cleaning your fly line, and they said they didn't reccomend useing anything like "son of a gun" or 'Armour All' on fly lines. I don't know thats just what they said.

Jackster's approach works most of the time for me.
Literally, single hand style. The other in your pocket keeping warm.
A fixed amount of line out, and water-load/rollcast.
No line through the guides=no freezing.
When you get it down, you can switch hands, and warm the other one.
Yep, left handed......or whatever's not busy...
Failing that, I use (Dave) Stanley's Paste. (Supporting locals)
He fished a lot of chilly temps, to come up with it.
Slick shooter/Greased Lightning is OK for lines, clean is good.....

Stanley's for me. Hadn't really given much thought to applying it directly to the line but have made note of that.

Jay, didn't mention using Stanley's on the line. Just line cleaners..
And, I carry a back-up tube of chapstick in the truck...
We have a warm window, so no "ice" fishing right now.
Thankfully....

BB it's the stuff that fly lines are coated with that doesn't like these products. (PVC?)

Primary ingredient is silicone, with a small amount of alcohol, plus water as the carrier
