Being new to both fly fishing and tying, my knowledge base is limited.

I have in my reading, come across references to patterns with red throats and heads, where the red might be useful in imitating a fish that is injured or in distress. Perhaps there is a carry over to the eyes.

It would be useful to get a definitive answer as I am currently tying clousers with both red and chartreuse eyes!
