    One of my home lakes is stocked with Trout. When they start stocking in the Fall, everyone is using bright colors, be it hardware, flies, micro-jigs, or whatnot.

    I do not claim to a "good" bass fisherman, fly or hardware. However, last Spring, I caught several LMBs on some size 12 Bead Head Scuds in orange, and a burnt orange Wooly Bugger.
