    Default Red V Yellow

    I have been having a good run in our matches using liquidized sweetcorn, in the margins The corn is dyed with Ringers red shellfish, or the yellow of the same name. In practice or matches I have noticed, the Red is so more effective than the yellow, the red liquidized cloud bringing them in and feeding confident, tails up etc, when I feed a pot of yellow its as though the carp spook and leave the swim,
    It is so noticeable, that I now only use the Red for obvious reasons, anyone else come across this colour thing.

    There does seem to be a common theme surrounding the colour Red, Fish & Fishing.

    Many Sea anglers use Red Ice Line - theory being this is near Invisible in Sea water.
    Dead Red Maggots.
    Robin Red & other Red Pellets.
    Red Corn & so on.
    OK, so maybe the fish don't actually see Red but it merely reflects in the underwater light in the manner of a safe to eat bait or safe environment, say in a cloud of Red groundbait.

    This Link probably goes a long way to explain why Red (the most easily absorbed colour underwater) appears as a mainly Neutral, Safe environment??

    Thanks for feed back Martin, The yellow is staying with the other fails in the shed, Red is a winner on our water at the moment, that is until the colour goes out the water, then its all about bread dobbing, or white pellets.
