Lure colors x position in the spread x time day
« on: August 22, 2010, 01:46:58 AM »
I know this issue as been discussed a lot times and Bennie actually did a lot research and wrote quite a bit about this matter.

What I would like to discuss is the personal preferences for certain lure colors to specific positions in the spread / time of the day...

For example, Peter Pakula proposes (based on his zillion years of experience!) that the following color combination is the best:

Short corner: purple/black/red
Long corner: black/purple/white
Short rigger: purple/black/red
Long rigger: lumo/light green/yellow
Shotgun: lumo; pink; other

On the other hand, Bob Schneider swears by the chart below...

What is your experience / preference?

That is pretty consistant, but more detailed than my observations.

Early and Late - Natural and Dark Colours
Midday - Bright Colours

It goes back to the old saying we used to use in fly fishing.
Dark Skies = Dark Flies
Bright Skies = Bright Flies

Very good information. There are so many different trains of thought that varies throughout the world. But for someone to follow an experts pattern is not a bad idea.

Thanks John!

Good day John F. Contacting you as a moderator. I can't open attachments, shows ERROR message every time, very frustrating.


Please help.

Thanks for the heads up. As you know the site has been upgraded recently and some attachments have been lost.

I have re-uploaded the chart in post #1.
