    Default Re: important gear storage question

    Yes San Diego gets hot, if you have a rig thats a kick around go a head and store it in your car, I keep a rod in the truck, tippet and line do get brittle when there cooking in heat. If I were you I'd keep it in my apartment and I'd also get renters insurance to cover your gear. Theres a lot of theft of parked cars in these times. Enjoy San Diego it can be a fun town.

    I would never store my gear in my trunk. There is no way constant temp changes, which would happen every day, is good for your gear. I keep my gear in a closet. Dark, temp controlled, less flux in temps, longer life. Theft concerns aside.

    Cheers,
    Mike.

    I fully agree with the advice given. I thought my gear was safely padlocked in my garden shed while I was away for a week with the family in 1979, only to return and find someone had hack-sawed the padlock off. Store it Inside and take away all that temptation for thieves!
