I picked up a mint, unfished, never had a reel screwed on it 8'6" Sage LL 5wt 2pc. Its a gorgeous as gorgeous can be, and while I have had it for months I
just now got up the nerve to fish it. Used it over the weekend and when I got it home I noticed that the seat concealed by the sliding band was fogged
over from moisture. I almost had heart failure when I saw it, but I sat in the sun and stared at it while I mumbled to myself rocking back and forth, and it
went away.

What can I do to prevent this again? The rod is completely factory fresh, although its 30 years old. Its as if the finish went bad, but I have never heard of this.

Of course I have never had a new 30 year old rod before either! Any ideas from the wood finish experts? Thanks, CJ
