Be in to WIN 1 of 25 Deuthlon Reel Maintenance Starter Kits!

How many times have you had a problem with a reel – be it a sticky drag, a handle that won’t turn – or even worst, an internal hemorrhage that shuts down your day’s fishing?

A wise retailer once shared with me a truism around tackle – ‘buy the best gear you can possibly afford, and then maintain it.’ He was right.

As anglers we are reasonably good at cleaning our gear at the end of the day – at worst, the drag is tightened and the reel showered with fresh water – at best, cleaned with warn soapy water or some anti-salt product, followed by a quick rinse with fresh water and then a toweling down, finishing with your favourite anti-corrosion product. With the drag now backed off, the rod is racked and ready for the next adventure.

Deuthlon is a company passionate about fishing reel maintenance, putting hundreds of engineering hours into research and development to create what is considered by many to be the best reel lubes available!

Entries close 11:59pm Monday 8th August, 2022. Winners will be announced and emailed on Tuesday 9th August, 2022.
