I've used the sharpie method with good success. I don't like the paste dots on the reel foot because if you change lines, you have to change the pasters. With the Sharpie method, you have a permanent mark on the line, not on the reel, which lets you swap reels if you want.

I've routinely used the 'stickies' that come with the lines - I faithfully put those on the spool and after a few unintended baptisms they fade and fall apart so I began using a Dymo labelmaker with vinyl tape (not the hard plastic) - I've used it for years in my furniture shop and those labels don't peel off and the lettering doesn't wear off. The higher priced ($30) label maker has many font sizes and you can make some small labels for the outside of the spool.

Good Ole Lefty claims credit for that system... It works for me. Especially when using the same reel for different weight rods.

Some fly shops will mark your new line with this system without your even asking.

Yeah. I have way too many reels and all of them have line on them. I had to weigh the first 30 ft. of some lines to determine the weight and marked them so now I know.

About any system works so long as you remember the system. I use a black sharpie, haven't seen a marker in Indigo.

I just wanted to say THANK YOU for this thread and the information regarding marking your line with a sharpie. I don't have too many reels or lines but I recently swapped two lines and reels and stickers or labels would have been a deterrant and made me think twice about swapping lines on reels. The lines being marked (one was a 4wt the other a 5wt) made it as simple as tying to the new spool and reeling it on the line.

Awesome idea and I hope whoever came up with it (Lefty??) gets credit for that awesome idea.

Thanks for sharing!

I use the plastic key tags attached to the reel case. Use a sharpie to put line weight and model.

For me it's not just weights and tapers and floating non floating. It's all the different types of lines. I have 34 reels now and almost all of them have different types of lines on the. I still just cut the Lable off the box and put it in the reel case. That works pretty good until I drop it out of the case at the river....

Then I just don't know what the heck I am throwing.

I do this, plus put a small label on the inside if the spool.
