If I'm using a fishing guide and he gets frozen I just give him some hot coffee and a donut and they're usually good for the reat of the day! LOL!

when I was guiding I would prefer Black berry brandy....

I've heard Vasoline will work, but I've never tried it.

Need to bump this thread, didnt want to start a new one...
Do frozen guides damage your line? I've been fishing alot this winter, and noticed the first two feet of my line is sinking. I've cleaned my line twice since the Nov or so, I apply a dressing to the first 20' or so, and clear my frozen guides before they freeze solid. Never applied any chemical except mild detergent to fly line, and never applied anything to the guides, except fly floatant.

Is it time for a new line?

ps- this line is a year old.

Never really gave much thought as to whether ice will knick up a fly line but makes sense I guess. Depending on usage and the quality of the line they can start to sink within a year. When the end of a floating line starts to sink I use it for streamers and rotate a new one in for dries and nymphing. Can get a little more use out of it that way.
