After the fishing season is over, you will want to store your fishing rod properly to prevent damage. Keeping your fishing rod in good condition is important to fishing enthusiasts, and we will provide detailed instructions on how to do so.
How and Where Store Fishing Rod
Your home or garage can be an ideal location to store your fishing rod. Before storing it, ensure that it is in a dry environment, at room temperature, and in a heated or temperature-controlled area.
Preparing the Reel
Start by snipping the used line. If it is damaged or contaminated with salt and germs, dispose of it. If fishing in fresh water, you may keep the line relay. However, if fishing in saltwater, remove and keep the line separate. Use hot water and detergent to clean the reel and line, then spool the line relay once it’s completely dry.
Preparing the Rod
After cleaning the reel, clean the fishing rod with hot water, detergent, and a soft brush or toothbrush. Thoroughly clean the rod, let it dry completely, then reattach the reel to the rod. Remove the drug from the phishing line.
Use Your Rod Rack
After cleaning the fishing rod and reel, place it on the rod rack. Rod racks are designed to keep your rods upright and in good shape. Avoid letting your rods lean against each other or the wall’s opposite corner, as this can cause them to become dull. Storing your rods on a rod rack is the best option to keep them in good condition until the next fishing season.
By properly storing your fishing rod, you can prolong its lifespan. Always ensure that the rod is cleaned and dried before storage, regardless of how you choose to store it.
