The Color Purple

Following the exposé on fly color selection for roughfish, carp enthusiast Mat Wagner of the Driftless Angler Fly Shop so graciously pointed out my failure to mention the color purple. He noted his successes using purple midge patterns in the coulee region of Wisconsin, also known as the Driftless Area. I have also shared success with purple colored flies on game fish species, but had not seriously fished purple to roughfish. Never to disappoint the reader, I fashioned several known carp slaying patterns in the art of purple. Have at it folks.
