I have actually used dyed calf tail in purple/white and a purple/yellow combination. The purple is actually more visible than black and the contrast against the other colors does make it easier to see, especially with the changes in light conditions.

Maybe antron or Z-Lon would work as a good indicator in a purple, orange, pink or yellow color...both of these are as bright as a brookie... Also foam cylinders are great too...

I've seen a guide whip out a black marker to darken a light-colored post when the glare gets bad. That'll save you from having to tie different versions of the same pattern.
