Good points from both of you. One thing to consider is that the pulsing/breathing of the pattern created by the compression of materials as it's stripped through the water may be just as important a triggering mechanism as the color itself. Tinkering with the bulk may be worth it to have some flies on hand with a subtler action and fuller profile, but the pattern may have the best combination of action/color as is.

Of course this means field testing needs to be done.
