Purchased a new rod and reel a bunch of months back and fished it for most of the year. This weekend I took my longer stick out for the first time in awhile as I was fishing larger water. Reel was really performing poorly and I think I need to clean it out .. which I never have done. Few questions for both reels I have ..

How often do you guys do that?

How do you do it?

If u need to re-lube it what do u gents recommend?

Any other info I need would be appreciated

Thanks in advance

Rinse well and maybe take a toothbrush to it. Check info on your reel. Most decent reels rarely, if ever, need any lubricant.

Clean your fly line in warm water and just a drop of dish soap. Probably don't need to get crazy with the reel.
