Proper care of fly lines for wintah.

Recommended Posts

I wash/dry /stretch and store all my fly lines for the wintah. I've been doing this for many years and have some lines that are twenty years old and still usable. Take the time to do this and save some serious money on lines.

Well said Mainiac!

I do the same and I put some fly line dressing (glide) on it before storing them on something bigger than a spool (coffee recipient).

Jeez, I gotta do this big-time this wintah!  It felt like I was throwing a slinky out there last Spring.  Mal, what do you use to wash the lines with?

Warm water and a very little Dawn dish soap. I put one small drop of Dawn on a wet face cloth and slowly draw the entire line thru it. then rinse thoroughly.
