Egg Carton Parts Holder. If you′re the handyman type who can dismantle your own reel for maintenance here′s a tip you can use. Save an empty egg carton or three and number each compartment. Then when as you′re taking your reel apart place each part in a separate compartment of the egg carton(s) as you go along putting part 1 in compartment 1 part 2 in compartment 2 and so on. When reassembling the reel you can pick up the parts in reverse order and get everything back together right. Of course it′s also a good idea to save and file the schematics that come with the reels you buy and use them when you′re doing reel maintenance. That′s the best way to know what goes where.
To keep reels in prime fighting condition periodic disassembly and cleaning is necessary at least every two years preferably annually. Because of the intricate mechanics this chore is best left to professional technicians at reputable tackle shops or service centers. The reels will be completely disassembled down to the last screw and thoroughly cleaned with ultrasonic dunking the preferred method. For the quickest turnaround have this done in the winter off-season.
It′s not unusual to see their tackle banging around in the back of a pickup going down a dusty road or stored in a boat locker without being washed after a day fishing in saltwater. I often see reels spooled improperly drags set incorrectly and precious fishing days ruined because a reel wouldn′t cast right.
Modern fishing reels are complex pieces of equipment. Take one apart and it looks much like an old-fashioned watch — lots and lots of tiny parts whose purpose is known only to a few select engineers.
Hold your reel properly while disassembling and assembling it. "We recommend anglers hold the reel in their left hand and work with their right. That way everything stays oriented. But the really important thing is to always hold it the same. That way the parts will go back together easier."
