Re: Hang marker
Lefty recommends tying in a nail knot for this purpose.
Years ago I thought about doing this as I was fishing at night a lot and thought it might help.
I found that as I normally cast the same distance on successive casts all I had to do was count the number of retrieval strips, say 25 each time, and then pick up for my next cast. It worked every time.
After a while I didn't even have to count. I could just tell instinctively.
