    does anyone know a way to keep the eyes on your rod from icing over ?? is there anything you can spray on them ?? what about ice on the line is there any secrets?? i usually fish in the COLD but the eyes icing over usually drives me to going home.

  2. There's a few lines that don't absorb water.Yo-zuri hybred is one, great for cold weather. Gotta have it to winter fish.

    Try "chapstick" placed liberally over guides,
    seems to help me.

    Last a couple of hours. I take it with me and reapply when needed.

    i agree with the new flourocarbon lines like yo-zuri available, icing isn't the problem it once was. wd-40 also helps some.

  7. Berkley Fire Line seems to help with icing eyes. I used to do a lot of fishing up at Huron in November, and also in the rivers through winter, and it was always a problem. Someone recommended the Fire Line and it seems to not absorb water and therefore doesn`t ice up the first eye guide. I`m sure there are a lot of other lines that work this way too.
