Lightly rinse your rod and reel off. Make sure that your drag is fully engaged to eliminate any water from getting inside.
Using a cloth towel, remove any excess water from the exterior of your reel.
Rotate the handle to further help remove any water that might still be built up in your reel.
Tap the butt of your rod on a hard surface. This will assure that there is no water trapped inside of your reel.
Completely let your reel dry. We usually will do this overnight or for 24-hours.
Back off your drag, while preventing the spool from spinning rotate the handle multiple times. This will make sure that there is no build-up within the reel and that your bearings are free.
Actuate the 2-speed mechanism and add a drop of oil to it and the neural knob.
