Went fishing the other day and there was a small oil leak on the lake. When I got home my trousers were spattered as was my landing net, net bag and unhooking mat. The latter 2 were wiped clean, bit the net, one of the rubberised type, needs cleaning. Any ideas on the best way to do it, or should I just bin it ??


The two best times to go fishing are when it's raining and when it's not

Warm soapy water should do the trick mate??

Martin is right, fairy liquid or stardrops is good for dispersing oil and grease.  Best using quite warm water also.

Fairy Liquid will surely cope very well - especially if the oil slick was caused by a Royal Berkshire ,Extra Virgin Olive Oil drizzled, Sun dried tomato & Ham sandwich.

If you have, or use, a jet wash, take them with you. A good blast, and rinse will shift almost anything.
