Fly line cleaner

#18
"Never, ever use Saltwater on a Rio PVC fly line. It breaks down the bond and results in very poor durability. The line will dry out and harden with constant use in Saltwater. We recommend a mild soapy water with a flannel to clean the line, then if you want to re-lubricate it, apply a 100% silicone, though very lightly. All PVC fly lines use silicone as a lubricant, so it is best to use the base ingredient to prolong the line's life."

OK, After several years of intermittent use, I finally decided to really clean my fly lines. This was a couple of years ago, before my fishing was temporarily put on hold, or reigned in, by an irregular heartbeat and some injuries. So now I have a few reels loaded with clean lines...I suppose that I should go dirty up these otherwise useless things.
