Re: Why so many spinner colors?
Awesome. This is excellent information: just what I was hoping for! All of this is new to me and I'm slowly starting to sort everything out. Thanks so much for the help guys!
I've definitely noticed that, especially at evening, the rusty spinner seems to be very effective during late and early hatches where I've been fishing. I assumed it had something to do with the lighting, but I was never quite sure, especially seeing such odd color variations of the same fly. This really makes sense now. I can finally start weeding out my flybox of those extra colors that don't produce for me (I sort of already started) and key in on effective dressings.
Some part of me still feels that some of the colors being tied are virtually useless, with exception to few very specific situations where they may apply. Again, thanks for the info!
