I don't know about anyone else but I like to label my spools with the name and weight of the line on it.
I have several Barrio lines, well 5 actually and another on the way,  presently I peel the label off the box as carefully as I can to affix to the spool,  not always successfully.
It would be a boon (to me at least) to have a spare label in the box.  Is this too cheeky a request?  :oops :cool:

Thanks George, I'll put some thought into that :z16

Meantime, if you let me know which lines you'd like them for via email, I can send you some labels like the ones on the boxes.

Best wishes

Aye that would be a good shout. Well perhaps not from a line sales point of view to be  fair. I currently have three 6# slxs for instance 😅

If I couod remember what size and type of line it is with minimal faffing I'd be happy to see that 👍

A pound at the Range 👍 and solvent takes it off if you need too.

That is probably going to work a lot better than stickers Sandy  :z16

The stickers break down when wet in my experience.

None of my reels or spools, or even lines on plastic spools are marked.

I love the anticipation of setting a rod up on the bank and wondering if the line you have is the correct weight.

Its sort of Russian Roulette with a line ;)
Ok, I admit it, I quite like this salmon fishing lark....

Must confess that I used to lose track of which lines I had on which reels all the time  :oops  but a few years ago I started to write the line info on the back of my reel pouches with a permanent marker pen :z16

I haven't really thought about it since ...... so I guess I can now tick that box as a winner :z17

I used to put stickers on the spools back in the fishery days ( when I had about 50 reels/spools in the hut ) but these invariably came off, or perished ..... and I had to resort to casting the lines on a few rods to work them out.

Cheers

My problem is that I take the lines off the reels at the backend and clean them. Come the spring I seldom remember which is which. Not the first time I have put a shooting head on the wrong  way and wonder what has gone wrong.

Some of Greys reels have on their spools line details that you fill in with small plastic grommets that they supply. So you can state size, types (floating, intermediate, etc) and whether WF, Dt, etc. All quite useful. The only missing part is line manufacturer.....but then they all be Bario!!
