Sir, as an avid steelhead
Sir, as an avid steelhead fisher-person, I can say you are 100% correct! WD-40 kept my lures, even ancient ones, owned back toward the middle of last century (1900, that is), safe, un-rusty; and most importantly, made those fresh-water seeking spawners and egg-layers angry! I'm an ecologist, by training, BTW, so I know all the technical terms too.
