Default Re: Does eye color matter on streamers?

Does eye color matter on streamers....... I really think we make this fishing thing too complicated. I know for a fact that me and several of my buddies have caught lots of fish on streamers and we all have different color eyes.

And besides, we are wearing dark sunglasses so the fish can't tell what color our eyes are anyway. Hope this helps.

I don't know about color but I firmly believe eyes are an important factor in streamers especially saltwater. For years I did well on Stripers with plain bucktails but there was a definite improvement with eyes even if they were just made with a marker.
Just got back from Miami on a Peacock Bass trip and the red eyed Clouser had the edge all day. Maybe coincidence but I doubt it.
Predators hit head first zero in on eyes!

Great flies and a great bunch of replies. And as soon as someone asks a fish if eye color (or eyes, for that matter) matters, and gets a response, I'll get real interested. For now, I'll go with the old "its what you have confidence in" program.
