Default Re: Fly line color question

While I don't think color of a floating line matters much to the fish, I have fished with others who do...and who go so far as marking the tip with a magic marker to give it a more natural look.

I DO think that the color matters to the angler, since we all see colors differently, particularly in differring light conditions. As most of us are generally struggling to mend and achieve a dead drift, being able to see and manage my line is paramount to me...especially in the last hour of daylight when I'm already squinting to see either my dry fly or my indicator.

Old eyes suck...
