When fishing streamers with a sinking line, I like to stay with a natural color that will camouflage. Even with a long leader if a fish sees this bright lazer-like thing goes past it's nose it may be a little cautious when deciding to strike the fly .If I am nymphing, where most of the fly line off the water anyway, I go with an easy to see color.
