Yes marker pen and mark where the line is near your hand - not at the rod tip - which is too far to see especially against the sun. I mark my running line every 10ft. So I know exactly the length of line I'm casting. Casting consistent sized loops make spey casting much easier as you can judge speed and timing much better.
