Frozen Guides

As we transition into winter conditions we tend to see lots of ice build-up on your fly rod. This can be very annoying and can damage or even break rods. There are a few different techniques and products out there that can help out.

1. Loon makes a product called Stanley’s Ice off Paste. This stuff works surprisingly well but it is expensive. They claim that it is not toxic and is safe for your line and rod.

2.A cheaper option that almost everyone already has on them is ChapStick. Rub the ChapStick on your fingers then apply it the all the guides of your rod. Make sure to wash your hand afterwards as it can cause oily stains on your clothing. 

3.Another good option is Pam cooking spray. You can spray this on your rod and it will help prevent ice build-up. This can be messy as well and can stain clothing so be careful.

4.Lastly, if your rod is building up with ice put your rod in the water and the warmer water will melt the ice. This can be helpful if you hook a fish and your guides are frozen, simply put the rod in the water it will melt the ice.
