After cleaning wipe the reel down with a rag soaked with a protective coating like Aluma Guard Reel magic or WD-40. A light coating of liquid furniture polish will also work. Be careful to avoid contact with the line or handle grips.
Start each trip with a thorough cleaning. Gently rinse each reel to remove salt particles. Don′t loosen the drags yet and don′t use a lot of water pressure either to prevent forcing salt and dirt into internal components. If possible wash reels with warm soapy fresh water to remove salt body oils blood and dirt. Remove the skirted spool (and drag knob if necessary) and clean the underside of the spool and the spindle area. Next rinse the entire reel again with a gentle spray and let them air dry or pat with a towel or chamois. Next loosen the drag knob to remove pressure so the washers don′t become compressed and warped.
Check out the following basic guidelines you can use whether you prefer chasing farm-pond panfish or saltwater marlins. By practicing these tips your reels will stay in tip-top shape much longer and you can be confident your tackle will handle anything a fish dishes out.
Use tweezers to handle springs and wire clips. "That'll keep them from flying all over the place and maybe getting lost."
Assemble the proper tools before you begin. "You'll need two small screwdrivers — a slot head and a Phillips — along with a pair of tweezers and an old toothbrush. If you have the wrench and parts list that came with your reel keep them handy too."
