Default I think I found out why I'm not effective with spoons

I was talking to a buddy of mine and I think I know what I did wrong with fishing with spoons. I was using the wrong color!

Anyone know anything about the color of spoons?

Fish will bite more if you use red, orange and yellow spoons when there is a lot of light in the water. When it's dark in the water you should switch to indigo, blue or violet.

Do you agree with this? Have you had any luck with this?

I am not sure about the color preference of the fish on light and darkness, but I know there are several types: casting spoons, trolling spoons, topwater spoons, and jigging spoons. The fish is attracted to the action of the spoon, not necessarily its color, I think.

I've always used brightly colored spoons such as orange and yellow, and have never had any problems. Then again, I usually fish during the day when it's bright out, so that might be why it's always worked.

I've looked more into the color of the spoon and yes it does seem to matter. I'm going to give it a go and see if it works for me.
I know there are many types of spoons, I've used a couple different types.

I haven't ever really fished when the light is very low-- so bright spoons for me all the way, too! One of the things I love about fly fishing is how particular it is.

I don't use spoons that much to notice the difference. That's useful information to be kept in mind though, thanks. I guess red, orange and yellow are the most light reflecting colors in water hence the most visible lures for trout.
