Getting ready to start to respool some of my reels . I like to put the date and pound test on each one. I’v tried medical tape , store bought stickers and a few other things. It all seems to have a draw back, leaves residue on the reels, falls off or the writing comes off . Anyone have a method of marking your reels that seems to work ? Thanks Rudey

Hey Rudey,
Here's what I have been doing. I bought a Dymo label printer at an office supply store but you could find one elsewhere probably. I use the plastic label tape as it is water resistant and the printing stays put. I rub the reel area to be used with a little alcohol, dry, and apply the label. My labels have stayed put for several years. Can be a bit tough to get off even once in a while. Make sure you rub the label with a finger or a cloth to really set the label. Here is a couple of pics of mine.

The Dymo battery powered printers are less than 20 bucks usually also. The printers are kind of fun to use. Problem is you find stuff to label.

Thanks Don, I took your suggestion and used my label maker for marking my reels. It worked great with more options then trying to write on tape. Looks like by cleaning them first with a alcohol wipe they should stick for a long time great idea! Rudey

Hey Rudey,
Now that fishing season is winding down rapidly and people are starting to stow boats and equipment as the hunting seasons are gearing up I was wondering how your reel labels have stood up to the pressures of water and handling? Now would be a good time to get ready for next season and get a label maker.
