Video: Checking Rod Guides for Nicks
by John Brownlee

Twice a month, Salt Water Sportsman will post a new video blog from Editor in Chief John Brownlee.

The vids center around useful tactics, techniques, and tips relating to saltwater fishing.

You can see all the videos in one place at Salt Water Sportsman's video page.

In this post, John Brownlee details how to find those cracks and nicks in your rod guides, with help from a knife or pantyhose. This easy trick can save you plenty of headaches when trying to find out why your main line has those annoying abrasions.
