What’s the best way to clean a fishing reel?
Even while you are fishing, you can get a head start on cleaning by spraying the reel down with freshwater and wiping it down. Once you get home after a day of saltwater fishing, cut off all the line that was used and remove the reel from the rod.

Rub the rod’s joints with candle wax or paraffin to prevent friction. The joints, also known as ferrules, are the places where the separate sections of the rod join.
What’s the best way to store a fishing rod?
Store your rod on a rod rack that can be mounted vertically or horizontally. Storing a rod improperly may result in damage or curvature. If you do not have a rack, store the rod on a hanger or nail in a closet. Keep your rod and reel away from salt, dirt and other substances that may harm the rod, both while fishing and while storing the rod.
