Rick, thanks for your concern.  No one in North Louisiana has a clue on how to drive on snow or ice.  It is dangerous to be on the road with us at times like this.  Give me 100 degrees and 100% humidity.  I don't think I could live in any state that doesn't border the Gulf of Mexico.

Rick, it keeps us humble and makes us really appreciate the dog days of August.  Thanks for your concern, it's a good time to stay in and tie flies.

I see that my southern friends are getting sleet, ice and snow.  Take care.
Want you to be able to make it to ponds and streams this summer.

Safety for our members is a prime concern.  We advise to stay off iced roads except in case of emergency.  We may postpone the meeting until Thursday, or just cancel for this month altogether.  Stay tuned.

I've no idea what is in 303 Aerospace, so I advise caution. Not all plastics are the same, and the characteristics of a truck bed liner or kayak differ from those of a good fly line, which can cost $70, $80, $90 or more. Unless you're a chemist with access to all the formulas, the safe bet is to use a commercial dressing that's specifically made for fly lines.

I clean with clean water and a rag. I have rejuvenated a old/warn line or two using Aerospace 333 protectant.  It's not petroleum based and does not harm plastics/rubber.  I use this stuff on my truck bed cover and kayak /canoe hulls. Not cheap but head and shoulders above the rest designed for plastic protection..
