Sometimes this method is so useful than fishing from the shore because some fishes don’t even come close to the shore. So, many people take a boat and go in the deep water of the lake, big pond and calm rivers for catching fishes.

You need strength and delicacy for fly-fishing. Though this method is a little bit complex than other fishing methods but the excitement you will feel in it, is much bigger than other methods.  You have to use a very lightweight rod for doing this because you have to cast a lot with it. Most of the fly fishing rods are made from fiberglass.

Another equipment you will need is to fly fishing combo. You will also need fly lines and other equipment also. Though fly anglers use live baits for fly fishing, nowadays some people are also using artificial flies. You can catch trout, pike, salmon and other fishes with this method.

But if it is not your last fishing trip and you want to go fishing in the future, it’s important to clean your fishing rod immediately.

A fishing rod is a very important and useful equipment for fishing. You should take good care of your fishing rod to get the best result from it. In the below article, you will come to know about the process of taking care of a steelhead fishing rod.

 

Discard the Used Fishing LineImage result for Discard the Used Fishing Line

Fishing line is the most used part of a fishing rod. It becomes weaken after a full day of fishing because it slams into fish scales and rocks under the water. The harmful UV ray that comes from the sun can also harm your fishing line. The water weeds and salt water also makes the fishing line very weak.

When you will go fishing for the next day, it can be a real risk you are taking if you are still using the old fishing line. Just cut off the part of the line you used earlier. Start from the unused part in the new day.

 

Wash everything with fresh water

The very first thing you need to do after fishing is washing your all fishing gear with fresh water. All the muddy things and various elements from water should be washed with fresh cool water.

When you are fishing in the salt water, washing is very important because salt water can damage your steelhead fishing rod and other equipment quickly and easily. Salt water can be the reason of grit on your rod. You can put some water in a spray bottle and use it to clean your fishing rod.

 

Wipe Down the Rod and Reel with a Soft, Lint-free Cloth

After rinsing your rod and reel, you should wipe them down with a soft cloth or paper towel. This will help you to dry the remaining water and remove any remaining salt before you store the fishing rod.

Be sure to use a piece of fabric that will not leave any piece of fiber on the rod.

 

Make them look good

If you want the finishing of your rod to last longer and look better, wipe the blank off a couple of times a year with a pledge. It will help to repel water and make them shine. If your rod reaches extreme condition, you can use a carnauba based wax.

 

Spray Thin Coating of Lubricant on the Reel

If you want to protect your reel from dust and grit while sitting on the boat or inside your garage, you can spray a thin coat of reel lubricant on your rod. But make sure you don’t spray it into the reel’s gear mechanism. The spray will rinse away the grease from the steelhead fishing rod. Grease can increase the chance of reel locking. So, it is a useful technique to keep your rod fit.

 

Loosen the Drag between Fishing Trips

It is a very good idea to loosen the drag on your reel before storing it for the next fishing trip. It will reduce the tension on your rod, reel, and the line and will also increase the life of your rod.

 

Wash and Dry Your Lures after Each Use

Maybe your lures are not so expensive like the rod or the reel but it doesn’t mean you will not take proper care of them. There are many curves on a lure where sand and salt can hide easily. Salt and sand can make the lures damaged very soon. So, it is better to wash your lures after every time you use them.

 

Conclusion

When you are going to catch a salmon or a steelhead, a steelhead fishing rod can be the best option for you. If you take proper care of your fishing rod, it can serve you for a long period of time. So, try to follow the steps I have described above to keep your fishing rod in good condition.
