Bassmaster Elite Series pro Bob Downey puts on a lot of miles towing his boat across the country and bouncing across the water come tournament time. All that jostling around can be hard on your baitcasting reels, and anglers like Downey need them to be performance-ready when the time comes to pull them from the rod locker. 

Investing in reel covers can save your gear and keep them game-ready at all times. However, when you have multiple rod combos, that investment is about the same price as a full tank of gas. Not to worry, as Downey describes, here is a genius, inexpensive solution to reel covers that will leave you saying, “Why didn’t I think of that?”

To protect his reels, Downey uses a simple beverage koozie modified to fit over casting reels by simply cutting a small slit across one side of the koozie. In this video, he shows how easily these DIY covers can fit over reels. The “real” beauty of this hack is that you can buy bulk blank koozies for the same price as one conventional reel cover. So whether you’re a tournament pro or “average Joe,” there’s not excuse not to take the time to protect your investments and give your reels the longevity they deserve.
