Default freezing eyelets

I'll be headin out again this weekend, and with temps lower than last weekend I'm going to be more prepared for my eyelets freezing. I did a search of posts and can't find what everyone here uses to stop eyelets from freezing. So what do you use? The one thing I have heard of was wd40.
Thanks
Ryan

did you check the flyfishing section?? This has been discussed many times and into great detail in there. I use some paste and I have also used NON-UV chap stick with ok results

I have done some experimenting and used the cheap WalMart nonstick cooking spray. Its only about 2 bucks for a big can.

On my spinning rod at Blue Mesa last weekend the guides froze early, but the recoil guides on my new rod were easy and quick, just took a little flick to get them free and they weren't a problem like I have on my SIC and Concept guides. I also spray Reel Magic on my Power Pro and that helps on those smaller ceramic type guides. I'd spray WD-40 but someone would accuse me of using it to attract fish. Plus it ain't worth the mess.

I was wondering about the micro guides? Wouldn't they freeze up faster since there is less area ??

The smallest I have is 3.5. I really haven't fished that rod in weather under 25 degrees.
I have heard the 2's are so small that the line moving through them keeps them from freezing.

Brilliant !! I hadn't actually considered the fact of the line occupying most of the free area.
