I think it depends on whether you have a tendency to make a lot of false casts. But then my catch rate went way up when I lost the bright colored lines.


Chaz, I agree I do very little false casting!

I used a tip I seen in a magazine of taking a felt tip marker and just putting lines all over my line to create a sort of camoflauge. I'm not sure it did anything but it's just an idea i'll throw out there.

I dont think brite line makes a diff i use brite ornage line on my rods. even my stellhead 8wt and steels get extra spooky when the water is clear and the crowds are in full force. if you use a fairly long leader and tippet and get it to lay down nice and easy it wont bother them. brite colors make it a lot more easy casting and detect hits with out a indicator. plus make it easy to mend in off colored water.

I think once flows are reduced and the water is crystal clear a bright colored fly line may spook more than a drab one. But more of a problem would be any line smacking the water near a fish.

Are you still using that sissy peach line I gave you. I hated that line!

I have a bright orange line from air-flo, fished bright green 444sl for 20 yrs and have changed to Rio gold with the olive/yellow color scheme. Have not noticed any difference in fish being spooked by line color.

Sharkskin claims that the rough finish deters flash while casting over spooky fish. Can't comment on that one though. Like others have said, stealthy stalk, good position and not a lot of false casting will help you spook less fish than a clear line. Bright lines are easier to see in the shadows and low light conditions.
