Quentin, of course from previous correspondence you know my feelings on topwater flies: they just kick @$$! Frog colors have always been my main producers, but red/white ranks a very close #2. These observations are purely because I tie and own more of those patterns, because sometimes color appears to matter very little, particularly to largemouth and spots, and that goes for pickerel as well. I figure smallies are probably the same way. If I could fish one type of fly year round, it would be a popper. Love those smashing strikes!
