    If the question was about making camouflaged tippets then camo line is widely available and is used a lot in carp fishing, the modern versions are floro coated nylon and the camouflage process is now by dots rather than colour changing, the combination of floro and dots makes the line invisible to fish, or so the theory goes.
    There are two basic fly designs, those designed to catch fish and those designed to catch fishermen, the latter being the best seller

    Possibly in one ore other light condition, one of the colours might have been less visible to fish, and so the tippet didn't appear fully?

    It just seemed to work?
    camo is used first and foremost to break up silhouettes - the colour pattern to blend in with the surroundings, so I suppose depending on the way the light falls the thinking goes that the fish may see a bit of it but not all of it and therefore not make the association with something attached to the fly.

    Whatever the fish think of it s another matter.
