The older I get, the more boring my tying becomes. Where once I tied trippy, Timothy Leary flies, I now fall into a more Bob Wyatt-y camp: size, shape, and posture, mean more to me than color. I'm not negating colors impact as a component, we know trout see in color, I'm just going on what seems to work for me. Chouinard fishes nothing but PT's all over the world, and changes nothing but size; he fishes PT's for Bonefish. I fish with a buddy who swears color matters, and he matches my catch rate, so there's that.
Maybe it's the translucence in modern materials, maybe it's the trout's ability to see into the ultraviolet spectrum that hits a trigger for them..., smarter people than me will have to settle this.
Remember this TIMOTHY LEARY QUOTE ?” TURN ON, TUNE IN, DROP OUT. ...”
Lol, I didn't drop out, but they came close to asking me to leave...
