I've been using an olive over white with a blend of lavender chartruese and white in between on the bayside the last few weeks. When I've found fish (lots of hunting and probing) the takes have been fast and competitive, no hesitation at all. But I really don't believe color matters at this stage of the season. A slender tapered profile is the key. I seem to always work in at least a strand of lavender and a strand of chartruse regardles of how "subtle" a color scheme I'm tying. Just a gut thing I guess.

Also, with Super Hair or Unique Hair the olive is more green than olive to me (but I'm partially color blind, so who knows). For what I think is olive I blend olive and tan.
