Fly Candy

When I tied these Black/white bangers up I was hoping they would fare better than other colours of the same fly. This wasn't the case this season. They did catch me fish but not as many as I would have hoped for....well not as many as the pink/white or Chartreuse/white versions. The red polar chenile at the front was there to mimic a bleeding fish from the gills yet didn't attract the pike as its supposed to do...or should I say what the general consensus is with regards to adding a splash of red to a fly. The fly moves as well as other versions, and looks like a baitfish. So why was it not as productive?

I can only surmise that the pike weren't attracted enough by it. Maybe I didn't fish it as well as I could have. So many variables to consider.....spose thats why I go fishing!
