Degrease Stiff Reels. If you purchased a new fishing reel and found it a little stiff when casting take it apart and see if you need to remove some of the grease on the gears. Old reels work better too if you clean out gummed-up grease and replace it with a fresh coating of light lubricant. A solvent like Ardent Reel Kleen or isopropyl rubbing alcohol works great to loosen up all grease. A Q-Tip or soft cloth can be used for application.

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."

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.

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."

Use tweezers to handle springs and wire clips. "That'll keep them from flying all over the place and maybe getting lost."
