I have one in the shed, but have never used it, by the time I read all the instructions and what all the colours mean it's time to go in.

Or a cloud comes over..

I have to say with all this wet weather we have had (I'm not complaining) I reckon this is the worst fishing year I have ever had (in 50)----like I keep saying, I think I might take up sailing, the Hornet is going to look a bit weird with a sail though!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks fellas for the top info, I have read a fair bit on the subject of colours at depth, and it's always great to obtain any extra information.

A bait fishing buddy has just been on my back to paint up some more heavy sinkers for deep water bait fishing in the fluoro yellow colour with Fluoro red/orange spots. He absolutely swears by them for snapper and whiting, and I have outfished other friends with the same colouring on small sinkers used in shallow water. For some unknown reason, the fish just love the colour, though barracoutta, or other toothed species pose a definite problem.

Warning, be prepared to be called a 'Nancy Boy' if using them in front of other anglers.

I also recall a book written by a scientist in South Africa who specialises in sharks, and he highly recommended not to use safety yellow coloured wet suits due to the sharks finding it highly visible. Makes me have second thoughts about wearing a lifejacket now that white pointers are protected.

Regards

Robin
