Default Reel Covers

Looking for suggestions for reel covers for my Diawa size 17, 27 line counters. Also for Okuma DX30 size. I store my rods and reels in my garage and want to keep the dust and dirt off of them.

For the rods and reels hanging above my boat I just use Walmart plastic bags poke a hole for the rod butt and tie the other end in front of the reel.......and free well kinda.

One lawn bag will give you 30 reel covers.

Gallon zip lock freezer bags work great also.
Take a scissors and snip off one corner to allow you to slip the bag up the rod from the butt of the rod.

When you get the reel covered, simply close the zip on the zip lock and you have a moisture proof and dirt proof cover.

Or you could go to your dresser and pull out all of the socks without mates. Cut a hole in the toe of the sock and slip the sock on the rod from the butt of the rod. Easy quick and free. I am sure that everyone has a few socks laying around with no mates.

Be safe
