GOOD FISHING SPOTS! in Australia - Queensland Posted September 22, 2009 May sound a little silly asking... But alot of reels cant be dipped in water right? I got sand in my reel and it was making a grinding noise, so i wanted to lightly spray it down to try and get rid of some, however the BF insists that i can not do this. On top of that, are there many reels out there that are water resistant? Google has been my friend lately, but some reels dont state whether or not its water resistant.
