Organize your Fishing Rods; By Glenn Mast
You should take some thought to organizing your fishing gear so that it is clean, in good repair, and ready to use the next time you head out. This can save a lot of time and money that could be better spent on fishing.
At home, you should have a permanent place for your fishing gear for long-term storage. Fishing rods should go into racks where they are kept off the floor, organized away from children and pets. Tackle should be organized in a big tackle box. Waders (clean and dry) should be hung or kept in a storage tub.
Your rods and reels should be clean and serviceable. You can clean cork handles with mild soap and a scrub brush. WD-40 and an old toothbrush can help with reels. You should check your line and, if at all worn or frayed, change it, so that you won't have to worry about it snapping the next time someone uses it.
Purchase a rack to stand your fishing rods in! This will eliminate damage caused by leaning against the wall or being accidentally stepped on and will also keep your rods away from children and pets.
