What I always do is spray it down with a hose, being sure to thoroughly rinse the guides and the guide feet. Then I wipe it down with a towel or shammy.

Water after every use is critical. If you have fish scales and other debris that the water won't take off, Lamiglass recommends a toothbrush and toothpast.

I drench my rods and reels with water and let them air dry after shaken out the extra water in the reels. I than wipe them down and spary them with reel magic. I has been working this long. Good luck.

Water and a soft cloth work great for cleaning. After they dry, spray them down with Pledge and wipe off. This will make them much easier to clean after the next trip.

I just hose them off and shake them dry a little, or use very light compressed air if im at work to dry them. What I have heard from both penn and shimano is *not to use high pressure water or air* because most nice reels are sealed so well that high pressure water or air just drives gunk in more then it takes it off. :thumbup:

The OLE Make'em Last.

I usually just rinse mine off. I will rinse one side and then flip the rods over and rinse the other sidewith low pressure. I will use a scrub brush and some soap on the foam handle if necessary.

Rod cleaning

I saw on one of the fishing shows where the host advised to clean your rod and reels with furneture wax? Like the spray on type. Havnt tried it. Anyone use this? I usuallly just rinse very well with water and coat them with armor all once or twice a year. I also break down my reels once a year and lube them up with reel grease/oil.
