    I read that report some time ago and actually had it in mind when I posted earlier.

    Note that it is not specific to trout, as suggested by Byron's quote from the study. There are some very high...

    Hmmmm ....

    This strikes me as a totally bogus report on a fictional study. If a citation and a link to the study and the appendix which lists the 118 studies isn't provided, this "study" should be ignored in...

    A more complete list

    It is my experience that "action" is more important, generally, than color. Action can include the movement of the hackle on a soft hackle wet fly, the flexible material representing antennae,...

    To some extent, perhaps. The bright green did seem to be a real turn off, based on the obvious refusals even though it did account for a number of fish. Not so with the bright yellow...
