Reasonable Care of Equipment
- After a day of fishing, wash with warm soapy water, and dry using a soft towel.
- Using premium reel oil, lightly lube the hinge once a month to keep the spring working like the day it came off the assembly line.
- Taking care of leather sheaths: The pliers will spend most of their time in the sheath, so it is important that the sheath is maintained regularly. After each fishing trip, wipe of any fish grime, salt, and dirt with a soft damp towel. Do not store the sheath in hot or dry places. Depending on use, rub down with leather conditioner every six months.
