How do you take care of your fishing rods

After every outing I wash and rinse and wax my rods. Once a week I drop them off at the nail salon so each guide gets done with a clear coat to prevent corrosion. Then it’s off to the masseuse for my foam handled rods. A Swedish deep tissue massage helps keep the foam handles soft and supple.

They’re then stored in a temperature and humidity controlled chamber on a rotating rod holder to prevent gravity induced curvature.

Also every rod gets a custom rod sock by a custom suit tailor.

just kidding, in reality I subscribe to the method stated by Lukster:
