AlanBrown is on a distinguished road

I use black electrical tape to mark my rode. About 3 full turns and it lasts quite awhile. When it starts to fray, I grab some more tape.

For visual reference I start measuring every 15 feet from where the nylon rode joins my 12 ft. chain leader. Thus, 1 stripe at 15 ft., 2 stripes at 30 ft, and so on.
