The more I started looking at matching the hatch, either on top or below the surface, the more I noticed most of the bugs I found were black, or a very dark brown.
I've had success with purple, flashbacks, green, etc., but I think I'm short on drys and nymphs in a simple black color.
Any thoughts on this?
Yup. More success on black. Even my best top water bass bugs, black deer hair catch more fish.

Shape and size, I think, is more important than color.
