I might add another point that may be helpful to readers of FFSW. I lived in southern Florida for many years, during which I was on the staff of the leading fly rod manufacturer of the time. When they wanted to test a finish they were considering for their fly rods, they would send me a sample. I was instructed to wet the bag the rod came in, put the rod in the wet bag and then store it on the top of my roof in the sealed rod case for several weeks. If I removed the rod from the tube and found the finish unaffected, they would use it. I found this to be the best test for finishes. The point to be made from this is never place a wet rod, or a dry one in a wet bag, inside a tube for storage.
