OUTDOORS Capital City Weekly December is a quiet and somber month for the Alaska sport fisher. Most of our Southeast watersheds are encased in ice, and it will be months before salmon fry dimple our estuaries. This is a time when most fly fishers begin to organize their gear and prepare it for storage. Rods get thoroughly inspected and dried and returned to their proper socks and rod tubes. Waders get patched if needed and stored in closets. Flies get cleaned, some get old tippets removed then they are neatly placed in their appropriate boxes.

Here are two "end-of-the-season" fly line maintenance tips that will help ensure you multiple years of quality performance with your fly lines.
