Thanks,

Sam

Hi Sam,

not much to do here. Just make sure that you rinse the rod in water (do not use soap), keep it in the sun to dry & store the rod properly till the next trip.

Most important of all.....keep the termites away. :twisted:

(I also know that cork lasts when used as a seal for wine bottles, so you could try dipping it in wine, but I dont think you want to be licking your rod everytime you fish. People might get the wrong idea) :lol:

That's really funny Kayur, though i know some polyutherene liquid is used for water proofing it. Regarding wine I have seen corks disintegrate in old wine bottles, so the best use of the wine would be still in a glass. :-)


Cheers - appropriately !!
