a good article on a subject that my mind seems to recoil at: maintenance!
SPINNING REEL MAINTENANCE
It is very important to routinely maintain spinning reels when they
are being used in saltwater in order to ensure optimum performance. The
last thing that you need when fighting the fish of a lifetime is for the
reel to fail due to poor maintenance.
Recently I stumbled across an article on spinning reel maintenance
while visiting the Alan Hawk website. The Alan Hawk website
(www.alanhawk.com) is well worth visiting if you are looking to purchase
a high end spinning reel and are looking for a comprehensive,
independent review of one of many of the reels currently available in
the market. The reviews are incredibly detailed and each reel is
completely stripped down and analysed.
I’ve reproduced the daily and periodical care sections of the reel
maintenance below but if you want to view the full article then click on
