Maintenance of fishing gear
Fishing gear is very important in fishing activities. In my view, this is often the most easily neglected aspect of this activity. Some fishing enthusiasts simply use fishing gear until they break. I think they all agree with the famous axiom of Nobel prize winner Murphy: "if it's not broken, you don't have to deal with it." But fishing gear is of great significance for fishing enthusiasts, because if the fishing rod breaks when it is on the fish, you lose the opportunity to have a great pleasure. "The fisherman's axiom" should be: "your fishing rod is broken because you have caught a long dream of a big fish, and your fishing rod has not resisted the huge pull."
Most people always do their duty to clean the fishing rod and fishing line after sea fishing, but usually it is not enough to do that. It is more noteworthy to use the parts in operation and adjust the accessories according to the design requirements. During the fishing season, regular maintenance of fishing gear is necessary. You should check the fishing line for scratches, spray oil on the metal parts, and grease the moving parts. The fishing gear should be maintained at the lowest level before the fishing season begins, and after the season ends, it takes more time to clean, repair and debug the fishing gear.
The cleaning and repair work for fishing gear should be carried out every season, including the overall dismantling of the fishing wheel, the application of lubricating oil, wiping and restoration. No matter how many times it is used, the salt grains will enter the central part of the fishing wheel, which will do harm to them. If frequent use of fishing wheel, it should be completely disassembled every year after the maintenance. The detached parts can be placed in boiling oil, so that the inner details can be maintained to remove salt, dust or metal debris. For beginners, this work may be difficult, but as long as it has certain mechanical knowledge and patience, the instructions can be completed smoothly. As long as the fishing rod is used properly, it usually needs to be cleaned without needing to be repaired. For those who lack experience and time valuable fishing, the best way is to send the damaged fishing rod to the local fishing gear shop for repair. Some stores offer this service.
You can dismantle, pack and reassemble the fishing line under the guidance of experienced fishermen, or you can do it yourself. In addition to the usual maintenance measures, I also think that some fine adjustments should be made to fishing rods. This can make the fishing rod more easy to use. The harsh noise inside the fishing line or the slight cracks in the fishing line should be found and repaired before the next fishing trip. In the process of angling, the fishing hand will find some problems in fishing gear, but when the activity is over, these problems will often be forgotten. To change this situation is very simple, my way is to establish a numbering information system for each accessory. For fishing rods with similar performance and data, I divide them into one category. I label the side of each fishing line and numbered it. When there is a problem in the fishing process, I will write the number in my notebook so that when I go home I can know exactly which part needs to be noticed and repaired.
There are other benefits to using this numbering method. I carry a small notebook with me to record any valuable information about each fishing tackle accessories. It includes the factory data of the accessories, the load test data and the fish line trademark, the last time for the cleaning or the date of the overhaul, and the abnormal reaction, the coping method and the experience gained in the use.
