This comes up over and over again and for good reason! First most don't understand what happens in water, even clear water and I have a couple articles for you to read and maybe you that don't understand will.

Let me say what I believe. Regular colors are very nice as long as you can see that color in water depth your fishing and colors start to loose their color pretty fast even in clear water. I also believe that if you use Florescent or UV colors they will hold their color much longer and deeper. Personally I don't really think it matters much which one you use as both are going to give you visibility much more than a regular color! I also believe there are times and conditions that the Gray or Black and Blue is at it's best. We all should know that all Chartreuse is Florescent! I will stop my part of talking here!

FL Colors Note: Be sure to note they start off talking about Florescent Red, but then change to all Florescent colors.

Your very welcome! I started reading everything I could find 8-10 years ago and saved a lot of links and read a ton. Some of the good links died and don't exist any longer which is a shame. Still there is a lot of info on this and is also why I use FL Blue tail when I tie a Blue tails unless someone insist on a different one.
