Whether October is the end or the start of your fishing season, it is the perfect time to clean your fly lines and get them in tip top condition. Cleaning your lines will make them float higher, cast further, and prolong the life of your line – not a bad return for spending five minutes of maintenance time!
The most effective way to clean your floating fly line is to utilize a specifically designed dressing that interacts with the fly line coating and not only extends the life of you line, but makes it slicker and higher floating.
RIO’s AgentX line cleaning kit contains a bottle of our AgentX line dressing and a couple of RIO Wonder Cloths giving you all you need in a handy pack.
Another option is RIO’s Line Cleaning Towelette, which is a single use silicone impregnated cloth that instantly cleans your line and adds a fresh, thin coating of silicone for instant slickness and floatbility.
This is also a great accessory to carry with you on fishing tips in your vest or pack, so you have speedy access on the water when your line gets dirty, or to remove salt if fishing in saltwater.
Cleaning a floating line usually involves one of three steps – depending on how dirty the line is. Watch this short video to see the simple, but very effective ways to clean your line and keep it in the best condition.
In case you missed it…
This link to the previous RIO Fly Fishing Tip shows how important it is to keep your fly rod fully strung when walking through bushes and undergrowth, and avoid losing a top section. Enjoy!
