Just a little survey for my fellow trout fishing fans. Question, given a choice of two colours on a trout lure what two colours would you prefer?

I would prefer "natural" , but that is more than two, so my pic is Black and gold.

Hey Warren

In my part of NZ my top colours are black with gold stripes for brown trout and pink with black stripes/highlights for rainbows

i was always a fan of just a gold scale pattern over black but a couple of years back got to study some stream spawned fingerlings in the stream where i fish.Looking at juvenile trout they're very dull colored no pinks,olives or golds basically they're just a dull silver/grey with a few dark grey pars and the odd dot ,even the eyes are dull.last trout trip i did i made up some of my 45mm trutta butters but just in a greyish silver base and not quite black dots with dull eyes and a matt clearcoat.Only did a few casts with the lure that weekend (it was a fly fishing trip after all) but the trout hit it no worries

Makes some sense when you think about it...who said match the hatch & you will catch...Chris this seems the case....who said fishermen were simple creatures...the more I learn about fishing the more I realize I know butt all.....Mr Smith
