I might be on a boat where it's possible there could be a half dozen of the same rods on it. It's also possible that all the rods could have the same brand of spinning reels. That could be a little confusing when you stop to fish and grab your rod. I got to thinking. I really don't like placing the treble of a popper or swimbait on the bottom guide when traveling from one spot to another. The hook will put pressure on the guide and cause a rash on it. I've done it for years just like everyone else. I've even seen idiot's put the hook inside the eye of the guide. So, I came up with a rig that might work and I'll be able to find my rods quickly. I even put a black marks-a-lot marking on each nylon strap just in case some other person had the same crazy idea as me. I like odds, and I think Vegas would give me a 500,000 to 1 bet that no one else on the boat will rig their rods exactly as me. Below is what I did to distinguish my rods from others on the boat. I think it might just work.
