One of my other wee pre-fishing season jobs is to make sure all my fly lines start the season clean. To help me do this I use the Airflo Whizz Lube cleaning solution
and although the picture on it makes it look like it should be used in the bedroom it is a very good product. I went through my normal procedure of washing each line in warm soapy water and let it dry. I then squeezed a bit of the lube out and clipped it on to the line (there is a nice foam pad) and simply wound the line back onto the reel. I was quite amazed at the amount of dirt this product found and removed from each line. Of course the out come is a clean line will cast more smoothly and easily than one which is all grimed up.
I think that this product is a must have for a fly angler and is especially important for those of us who have the wonderful new airflo ridge lines – it really helps clean all the dirt out of each ridge.
The count down is on with only 6 sleeps to go before the rivers open for the start of the season.
