How to Clean Your Fly Rod

Harry Murray discusses how he cleans his fly rods and generally cares for them year in and year out, some since 1954. As Harry states, a little cleaning goes a long way toward extending the life of your fly fishing rod but the single most important tip is to be absolutely sure your fly fishing rod is DRY (especially the grip) prior to putting it back in its sack and fly rod tube for storage longer than three or four days.

  1. Great information. I use to fly fish a lot in Missouri but we moved to Illinois several years ago. Not many trout streams up here. Anyway, we recently purchased another home in Missouri and I plan to take up the sport again. My gear has been in storage for several years so this is very good information to prepare for the future. Good job for us old guys!
