Sand eels are wicked important around here as are silversides.
You will have to know how to 'match-the-hatch' though.
One place I fish, the sand eels are never larger than 1 1/2 inches while another place I fish the average size is 6-7 inches
With silversides, sometimes you're dealing with juveniles, sometimes with adults, sometimes both.....
You didn't think this was going to be easy, did ya ?
As for colors.... much of the time I use the "Rays fly" colors of olive over yellow over white.
Other times I try to match the color of the sky. For example, black at night, pink at dusk, yellow during the day.... like that.
Color is not nearly as important as length/profile/action
( but you know what Lefty sez...... "It ain't not use if it ain't chartreuse" )
