Everytime I go I just rinse it down with a garden hose and then dry it, tear it down and clean all the parts in light soap and water, dry it all and oil or grease where necessary and put it back together. Done this for years and my reels are 10/10 mechanically

I've heard of guys putting them in the shower when they got back to where they were staying and letting hot water run on them for 5-10 minutes.

DO NOT use hot water. It can melt the grease out of the reel. Mildly warm is ok but definitely not steaming hot.




If people concentrated on the really important things in life, there'd be a shortage of fishing poles.

i just rinse with fresh water from hose as soon as i get in. Let air dry. Then sray a little reel magic or wd 40 on it and wipe down. As long as you don't drop it in the salt water that should be it.

I just rinse them all with a water hose when I get home, all over reels and rods as well. Then every couple of trips re oil or lube them, all reels are still mechanically sound as before they were taken to the coast
