Odd, I was just going to suggest; Through The Fishes Eye by Sosin, when I read further down and find it already mentioned. I have an edition that was given to me in 1977 by my father when I was a Junior in high school. Dad's long since passed on but I still have the book.

Fishing Lure Color Selection (Part 1). How Colors Look Underwater

Part 2

Part 3

Part 4


This was GREAT information Paul--thanks so much for posting it! In fact I would go so far as to say that this series of videos should be "required information" that people must watch before they can comment/debate/argue about the importance of lure color(s) in the whole scheme of things. The visuals presented in that video series are used perfectly to illustrate the concepts of light absorption by water, the refraction/reflection of light, and the effects of wave action and particulate matter on light penetration. Incredible stuff!

Hey Steve, I'd like to propose that you make a sticky (in the Biology section ?) with these video links in it. I think it would save a lot of debate/argument in the threads, and therefore the energy that people have to devote to this type of discussion can be based on a solid foundation of the physics of light across an air/water interface, and the basic effects of water on light transmission.

+1 Steve, thanks.

I started reading the Sosin book last night, and will post more about it in another thread. Very interesting stuff though!
