So for everyone that’s been looking for a new way to bag more fish, maybe one of the best fish attractors has been sitting on your garage shelf and you didn’t even know it! What was found out by a simple accident can literally revolutionize your next fishing outing and make you the envy of every Pro Angler out there.
First discovered by The Rocket Chemical Company while developing missile technology, in 1953. Today it has hundreds of uses, besides what it was originally designed for. While this secret has not been sold specifically for fishing, believe me, if you asked many successful fisherman what they’re using you will be surprised how may don’t want to tell you that their secret is simple and cost about the same a a bottle of 7 UP.
Why does this stuff help you catch more fish? Honestly, you got me, originally it was believed it contained “fish oil” as one of its ingredients. That would make sense, but no, according to the makers of it, WD-40 contains no fish oil. In fact, the company states that although WD 40 will protect your fishing equipment they do not recommend using it for fishing.
But so what, who cares what the company says, there’s proof that this stuff catch’s fish! The only thing you want to consider before running to the hardware store and buying a can is to consider the legalities.
