Default Re: impact of rod color?

Something I neglected to mention in my post above; it seems that when trout fishing with a dark gray un-sanded blanks circa 1979 Orvis 5 weight, I can't keep silvers off the rod. I believe I can say without danger of embellishment that I have caught at least 65 - 80 large salmon with the dark gray un-sanded rod. It has a cork insert instead of wood and I am not sure if that has any influence on the results or not. It is however uncanny how many untargeted silver salmon are brought to shore with the gray rod.
