Default Re: How do you identify your lines?

Steve, welcome to the board.

I think this is an old Lefty Kreh tip and it works really well.

Use a permanent marker and draw short dashes for each "weight" and long dashes for a 5 weight increment)

so for example a

3 weight would have 3 short dashes

a 5 weight would have one long dash

a 7 weight would have one long dash and 2 short ones

a 10 weight would have 2 long dashes

a 12 weight would have two long dashes and two short dashes etc

You can put these on both ends of the fly line so you can see what you have on a reel, or if it's stored you can tell by looking at the back end.
