There are many different types of fishing equipment for fresh and salt water fishing. Always consult the manufacturer of your equipment for their lubricant recommendation. Greases for fishing reels are specialty products, typically sold by the reel manufacturer. Those products are formulated specifically for that type of service. They are specially packaged to make application convenient. Fishing reel greases usually have very good resistance to water and protection against corrosion. Typical automotive or industrial greases are not recommended for the lubrication of fishing reels.
