Colors are cool and can make a difference!

I ususally tie in a few strands of bright blue mixed with a few strands of hot pink mixed together (three of each) as cheeks on my flatwings. The mixture produces both a hot violet sheen and also the individual colors as well as reacting to the background yellows & chartreuse to give a range of different effects as the materials move. Fish seem to like it too!
When sight fishing, look over your shoulder from time to time, you never know who's behind you
