Not to take away from the other thread about car waxing ... but ... how many of you wax your fly rods? Not the bamboo (I, too, like the new varnish smell for as long as possible!), but your graphite rods.
The first thing I do, after completing a build, is paraffin the ferrules. The next is to Turtle wax the rod. Is it my imagination that the waxing helps keep gunk from sticking?
What say you?
