1. Check tones by using neutral colours

When you don’t know the colour match to particular field or testing other colours, please check tone first.
Use “Ivory” that has low UV reflection. If reaction is weak, use “FL White” that has high UV reflection to determine whether attract highly active fish or
use “Black” to appeal to bottom layer fish.

When neutral colours won’t produce desired results, fish have preference to specific colours so moving to next check.

2. Check Colour Family

Fish identify object by the PROFILE of fly/feather, but it needs to have matching clours to their preference to produce biting reaction.

If it’s trout (salmonidae), they can tell not only trichromatic colours composed by red-green-blue, but also tetrachromatic colours specific to yellow colour details. Thus it’s always recommended to start testing “Yellow Family” first. Then specific clours always out perfrom a choice of yellow, so you need to colour match to other family. Generally, when water temperature is low trout react better to pale colours and dark colours when temperature is high.

Water condition affects the colour of water. In relation to the position of fish, select colour needs to stand out firmly from backgdrop or blend in slightly to the background.

  • Water Colour: If it’s clear, colour of sky serves as backdrop. If it’s stained, opposite hue will stand out (red stands out in green water). If it’s muddy, only the dark colours remain effective.
  • Sky Colour: Effects shallow range fish. In morning, green family stands out beter. During daytime, yellow, red, and orange stand out better.
  • Bottom Colour: Sandy bottom requires slightly darker earth colour stands out. Silt or rock bottom requires paler earth colour to stand out.
  • Bank Colour: For fish minding bank side for edible objects, opposite colours stand out from the bank colour (green against earth colour bank and red against green bank).

3. Check Range/Activeness/Attraction with FL Colours

“FL Yellow” and “FL Orange” has both trout effective yellow colours and high UV reflection that appeals to trout’s tetrachromac vision strongly.
It’s recommended choice when fishing deep water or in combination with “Pikumon” indicator looking for the best effective range.

FL colours can work as a pilot to see if fish are active enough in stained water.

4. Make Adjustment at Pressure and Condition of Fish

If you are fishing next to other angler, avoide using the identical colour but select slightly different colourway in the same tone/same family such as using “Dandelion” when next angler is using “Lemon” colour.
If you come across lucky situation that fish are in feeding frenzy, select max stand out clour such as “Lilac”, “Purple”, or “Blue”

5. Combination of Different Colours and Material

You can mix “Black” that stands out in staine and “Lemon” that appeals to trout’s tetrachromachy or “FL” colours with blending colours.
