Lure Colour Recommendations

Natural Colours
• Natural colours imitate bait fish and are worth a try, whatever the conditions
• Because the colouring of species varies a great deal in different waters due to local     conditions, the lure colours might also vary

Bright or Fluorescent Colours
• Colours like red, orange and yellow etc. do not naturally belong in the water, but can be     used in lures as super-normal effects
• These colours are successful, when fishing in the dark or in very deep or coloured waters

Cold Water, Cold Colours
- Warm Water, Warm Colours
• This proverb seems to be surprisingly correct
• For example, use blue, violet, white and silver colours in colder water


Vary Your colours

• Don't get stuck with casting the same lure to the same spot over and over again, because     fish get used to the lure very quickly
• Changing the the colour or/and the lure type can work wonders


Best visible colours in different depths
(in clear light & water conditions)

The Four Rapala Colour Families

Imitative

• Colour schemes designed specially to imitate food fish
• Find out what are the predatory species you want to catch, after that you can choose the     colour of the lure
• Colour examples: Perch, Rainbow Trout, Silver Mackerel

Variations
• Variations of imitative colour schemes to suit different conditions
• Use these colours to imitate the prey species in your particular water and fine tune it to      imitate the colour of the fish to suit the local conditions
• The imitative colours prove advantageous when water conditions change
• Colour examples: Red Crawdad, Gold Shad and Holographic colours


General Patterns
• Classic colours designed for situations when you don't know what baitfish are present
• General Patterns can also be used to combat unusual weather conditions, and clear water
• The blue, silver and gold colours that are found in thousands of bait fish around the world


Reactors
• Colours designed to stimulate an aggressive response from predatory fish
• Bright colours send an immediate message to predators
• Fish the reactor patterns where you know the predators will be hiding
• Use the reactor patterns also in bad fishing conditions: in dirty water or in poor light
• Colour examples: Clown and Firetiger
