RE:WD 40 and Fly Lines

I have always been a little hesitant to wd-40 (or tri-flo) my fly lines. I usually just take off the spool, spray the frame side down, and then spray a paper towel or rag and just wipe down the spool side--keeps the line and backing pretty oil-free. When I am being anal, I strip off the fly line, spray an old toothbrush with wd-40, and scrub out the inside of the spool if there has been a lot of salt build up...

I don't recommend using the toothbrush ever again of course
