Hi all,
I have been experimenting with using silicone spray on my floating fly lines and fly rods.
I always spray my Minn Kota Ulterra with silicone after rinsing it off with freshwater after every use and it works very well.
I tried it on a couple of flyrods too and they become very
smooth and clean.
The next step was that I sprayed a couple of floating fly lines with it and the result is very good, when I whipe it off with a piece of cloth a lot of dirt comes off and the lines are super smooth.
The spray is much thinner than the typical silicone fly line dressing you can buy in those little bottles
I was wondering if there are more people spraying fly lines with silicone and maybe they can tell what the result is in the long term (any line damage or not)
I guess I am starting to use the silicone spray for almost everything :)

I thought I just wanted to share my experience with you all
