There are times when you're 'reely' (ya, ya, bad pun) behind the power curve on this (read years). There? I'd think about handing them over to someone who does this for a living.

There's a Fellow in our area (Archulla? He's in Grants Pass, Or.) who does this kind of stuff .. also gather he can fix anything you can break ... there are times when 'letting the Man do his thing is the best answer.'

I'm sure Google will give you more names (and someone the proper one for the above), but Mr. A is THE fix-it 'God' for most here in the PNW.

I do maintenance work on these reels, as well as repair and modifications. Shoot me a DM if you'd like to discuss details.

Great link for the ross reel-thanks for putting it on. Just a comment, I also have a Lamson Velocity 2 and it and my fly shop pretty much said--don't clean it, don't even mess with it. My kind of reel.

Default Re: Best way to clean reels?

I have no more to add as far as links or repair shops go but................................

I am a lover of fishing tackle and unless something disastrous happens I never dunk a reel and they never come in contact with sand and soil. This practice alone will save lots of strange noises or performance issues form ever happening. I do use reels in salt water and if I notice any excessive accumulation of mineral residue on the reel I wash with soap and warm water then lube the spindle.
