I make my own spinner rigs and generally use red beads. I seem to have better success using red than other colors. I am interested in comments from other anglers and curious to see if a particular color or combination of colors stands out among the replies.
I guess that is going to depend on what, where and when. On my home lake I use lime green and metallic red. Mille Lacs, I have been partial to red aand orange. Water clarity is also a big factor. It's why most manufacturers produce so many color combinations.
Even eminent chartered accountants are known, in their capacity as fishermen, blissfully to ignore differences between seven and ten inches, half a pound and two pounds, three fish and a dozen fish. ~ William Sherwood Fox, Silken Lines and Silver Hooks, 1954
