    I. Think color is a personal preference thing,I use a blue and green braid rope but janes into purple and pink,so that's what she uses. both anchor the boat the same it's fly choice that seems to make the difference in catch results.

    Ira & jwg nailed it. you want to know where your anchor line is at. +100 for braided, bright colored lines.
    if you fish or boat the salt water, it becomes clear right away why you want a line you can see in low light.

    Does anchor rope color matter? What a stupid question!!!

    Of course it does!

    How else are you going to find it when you forget to tie the knot at the end ? !

    :p

    Other than that... I'd go for what Ira and jwg said. Nothings worse that having a fish wrap you rig up around the rope... and at close range! :eek:
