while i was told by a malay uncle at bjt this morning that tambans dont like red (i was testing the red hook with white fur) hence i didnt get a bite (not many people had much bites anyway, including the uncle himself), i did have some attacks by todaks (abt 20 cm skinny ones.., there was a 40 cm one more interested in my lure)
so out of curiousity .. is there a color list for tambans? that they only like gold hooks and green/white fur? anyhting else and they dont bite?
If I'm not mistaken. It has to do with the colour spectrum and how it shows up in the water.
The colour combination should try to resemble the food that they are after, which in this case should be shrimps. The greenish hue or whitish hue over a gold core may be the key attractant.
