Reels - washing down after use.

   Rated 120 time(s). Email to a friend
 

Allways wash your reel with the drag done up tight to avoid forcing the salt further into the reel. Try not to spray the hose directly on to it in a jet. Muffle the hose with your hand or just set the nozle on a kind of a dribble. Alternatively use a bucket of warm soapy water and wash the reel by hand with a sponge or soft-bristled brush.

Once the reels have dried, a light spray with CRC, WD40, Tackle-guard or similar is a good idea before putting them away.

Every year or two drop your reels in for a professional service. It doesn't cost a lot to keep them in top condition and you'll be glad you did when you hook that fish-of-a-lifetime and your reel performs faultlessly!
