Fly Candy

I cant put my finger on it why Orange and black is such a productive colour here around the island, and to be honest I don't think I ever will. The only hypothosis I have is this colour gets attacked through sheer agression for being within that pikes patroling area.

I can remember on a number of occassions last season fishing with some perch patterns that didn't get a look in, yet as soon as I chucked an orange pattern on, either like this softbelly baitfish or the orange n black banger below over the same area, the fly was hit pretty much instantly.

Orange....It has absolutely no qualities or similarities to any of the fish we have around the island but yet It seems to be a snotrocket magnet!......Why oh why?
