Tool Time 2.0 - Microfiber Cloth

I had a coach when I was younger that would continually remind me that, “If the ladies don’t find you handsome they better find you handy.” How that correlated to swimming still escapes me; however, it made me a better fisherman. Over the next few weeks I would like you to imagine your author as the Tim Allen of fly fishing as I present to you a multitude of gizmos and gadgets that belong in your angling program. 

This week’s tool is not so much a tool, but an item commonplace to the garage- the microfiber cloth. Cameras, phones, ‘cheaters’, and sunglasses are all susceptible to water spots and other various types of gunk, sunglasses especially. I’ve seen everything from ash, to sundried tomatoes, and even a little dried vomit succumb to the cleaning power of a microfiber cloth.
Where can I find this space-age technology?

Most retail establishments will have bulk packs of these in the cleaning or detail sections of the store, or you can order a lifetime supply on Amazon for twenty bucks. 

The trick is to actually have your cloth on you.

I suggest a slight trim of your cloths before you stash them; unless you purchase the smaller pocket sized ones (I did). But, for those who are slightly more economical, you can trim those to size. 

I like to keep a cloth in every jacket I own, the interior pockets are perfect for this. For the boat or your bag throw one in zip lock bag, or a dubbing bag if you want something a little more to size.
