How To Clean A Fly Line

Ivan Orsic / Sep 21, 2015

Dirty fly lines inevitably become a name of this game. They get stepped on, caught in bushes (and sometimes maybe pulled a little hard out of bushes), caught under rocks, drug through the mud, etc. That's part of the deal. Thankfully, high quality fly lines are made to take this sort of abuse and keep right on ticking. While the hardcore angler may be lucky to get through a single season with the same line, the recreational angler on the other hand should expect several seasons out of a fly line with proper care.

Cleaning a fly line is very easy, only takes a few minutes, and will definitely add life to your line. To get the process started you will need:

1. Bucket/container with warm water.

2. Mild dish soap.

3. Paper towels or clean rag- a clean rag is preferable.

4. Fly line dressing and cleaning pad. In this example we used Umpqua Glide.
