How to Attach a JRW Rod Ruler Fishing Tape Measure to your fishing rod for measuring fish:

The vinyl film that the JRW Rod Ruler is manufactured from is a thin, flexible, self-adhesive material. You will need to be very careful during the removal of the back-liner and while applying to your rods. Any stretching of the vinyl will distort the accuracy. Pay special attention to static electricity that you may experience when removing the backing from the fish ruler itself as well.

The optimum application temperature range is between 50f - 75f degrees. Before you start to apply your fishing tape measure you will first need to clean the surface of your fishing rod with a mild soap & water solution. It is best if you secure your rod horizontally to a table top to prevent from moving during application, masking tape works well for this.

  • Figure out where you want to position the rod ruler on your fishing rod. Determine whether you wish to use the whole 36 inches or if you want to cut down to a smaller size. Use a sharp scissors or a razor blade to cut your fishing tape measure to length.

  • Once you have figured out placement of your rod ruler you can start to peel back the liner from the decal, starting at the 1 inch mark. To do this, let the decal hang vertically and begin to peel the entire liner back slowly. The slower you remove the less likely you will stretch the decal or create unwanted static electricity. Once the liner has been removed, grasp the end of the decal with your other hand.

  • With the decal in both hands, hold taught about 1 inch above the surface of your rod at the desired location (right down the spine). Remember not to pull too tight! Let the center of the decal touch the rod first, working out to the ends. You want to avoid repositioning your decal so work slowly. Lifting the decal from the surface may cause it to stretch.

  • Using a finger at the center of the decal, gently slide your finger over the decal in each direction working your way to the ends. Once in place firmly rub the entire decal to ensure complete adhesion. If you have applied the rod ruler to a two piece fishing rod, simply cut the ruler with a razor blade at the union of the two pieces. That's it and you are ready to start measuring fish and will never again wonder how to measure fish, you will in fact know how.
