Default Cleaning your equipment

After you are done with a day of fishing, do you take the time to carefully clean your equipment? You don't want to accidentally spread something from one fishing spot to another, e.g., whirling disease.

Not something that I've ever really considered. But when you mention something like whirling disease and how it can be easily transmitted through spores, then it makes me realize I need to be more responsible.

It really is important to thoroughly wash whatever has been in the water before you head off to your next fishing spot. Cross contamination can be a major problem if you transmitt spores or parasites from one location to another.
