Do you wax your rod….


Feckin eejit
Only because stuck ferrules have been mentioned many times. I had a ferrule jammed and couldn't get it apart. Ran hot tap water over the female ferrule for a short time, being careful to keep it away from the male side as much as possible, and eventually the rod popped apart easily.

I use a wee smudge of chapstick. Cheap, easy to use, conveniently packaged and does the job well.
I use the raspberry chapstick!! A little TMI i know.. works as an attractant on your fly too!!

For him there whould always be the riddle of steel
Never waxed, just jam the male into the female dry as can be.

I do take them into the shower with me after the fishing bender is over, we like that warm soapy cleanup after all the rough housing
