RE:WD 40 and Fly Lines

Makes a lot of sense to put it on SW plugs, seeing as they are subject to a lot of salt and corrosion. It makes sense to put it on reels too, but for some reason I have not been an external lubricant kind of guy (joke there somewhere) despite the fact that I subject my reels to as much salt and corrosion as anything else. I do bathe them like babies though.

It would be interesting to contact WD-40 and ask whether they still make it from 100% pure fish oil. I'll try to hunt down their number today if I get the chance...
