You bring up a good point. Any water that is lacking in red wavelengths should serve to camoflage the line to an extent. High-turbidity, murky, green water would seem ideal, since the red light would be scattered at a very low depth. This is starting to make me think that rivers discolored by rainfall and algae blooms, in addition to Northeastern shallow coastal areas with high turbidity, might hold some promise for red line. If the red line was indeed less visible to the fish, yet highly visible to the angler, that would be quite a new product. If we could only convince one of the clear line manufacturers to make a clear/red intermediate line for trial purposes... I think there are plenty of willing field-testers on the forum! Any suggestions?
