RE:WD 40 and Fly Lines

Thanks for validating that through your contacts - I've heard this discussion go both ways - that WD-40 was derived from fish oil (historically) and did no harm, etc. Some folks spray it on flies and lures, etc. I've stayed away from it myself, although the promise of a protective coating is definitely a motive for my SWFF reels. Thanks and keep us informed as you get more clarification from the line manufacturers.
