Care & Maintenance
Your new Clearwater Large Arbor reel has been properly lubricated prior to shipping. However, it should be cleaned and lubricated after extensive use or after contact with
dirt or sand. Your reel should receive routine cleaning and maintenance at least twice each year. Lightly lubricate all moving components—handle, center spindle, and gear shaft with Penn reel lube, which is available in tackle shops. Do not put the reel away wet, or into a wet reel case or tackle box. For extended storage, remove both line and backing and loosen the drag. Learn more about the Orvis Clearwater Reel.
