I figured it was a good time of year to post this for those folks who are about to dust off their reels and get ready for summer.
A lot of you probably already follow the instructions in this blog, but it's got 7 videos from the Shimano reel cleaning folks that are always good for a watch.
I wish I had these videos years ago when I was first learning how to clean my reels. Lots of good info.
Even if you just do the first few steps of the first video after every trip it'll make a huge difference.
