  • No More Second Guessing Line #Dobyns

    No More Second Guessing Line #Dobyns

    By

    Here's a quick tip that'll help keep you from second guessing what line you have on your reel throughout the season. Like many other anglers, I use a wide variety of line sizes. Sometimes it's hard to distinguish between 14lb vs. 16lb test and so on. To solve that issue, use a little bit of painters tape, tape a small piece to the back of the reel, and write down the line size with a sharpie. Be sure to use painters tape. It'll come off a lot easier and cleaner when it's time to remove the label.
