Clean parts with Simple Green. "Never use gasoline or similar products to remove dirt and grease from your reel's parts. It'll melt plastics. Use a biodegradable product such as Simple Green and a toothbrush that won't hurt the plastic or fiber parts of the reel."
Lubrication is an essential part of spinning reel maintenance. Use the oil that came with the reel or a quality after-market brand. Ball bearings and metal bushings tend to collect water and salt leading to corrosion and seizure if not oiled. It′s difficult to crank in a fish if the handle won′t turn. A little oil goes a long way though. Too much is almost as bad as not enough so apply sparingly.
Getting ready for a trip to the water? Choose the correct fishing reel for your outing. Whether you′re after a big steelhead or a scrappy trout learn about these different types of fishing reels and how they can work for you.
Grease gears. "Apply grease to the bottom of the teeth not the top. Applying grease to the tops of the teeth will cause the gears to throw the grease everywhere. You want it in the bottom. Also don't slop the grease all over the place; a light coating is all you need. We apply it with a toothpick or a small brush."
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.
