To elaborate more on the color... Rago's paintjobs always are very high contrast with large, widely spaced black dots. Irregardless of what color tone the fish is (green/blue/silver...) every real trout I see in the water has a very subdued color pattern, with small, tightly spaced dots that are often blurry or fade into the background color of the trout. These are all typical colors I see on the water...









It makes sense that a trout would have a blurry, disorganized, low-contrast coloration, since it helps the fish blend into the surroundings. The white and black paint jobs Rago uses would make the fish stand out too much. I think that the bass are also much more likely to bite a lure that has a low-contrast color pattern, something that doesn't burn into it's brain, something it can't recognize quickly as being fake. I think the Triple Trout has done a great job in making a lure with a low-contrast coloration that makes it look more natural, even if it lacks detail.

One can argue about if a paint job is really important, or if it's mostly the action that matters. But if you're going to go through the trouble of painting a lure, why not paint it like the real thing. I understand it's probably a lot more difficult to paint all the tiny dots in all the weird faded colors, too. But in that case it'd be better to just leave the details out like a Triple Trout or Stocker Trout instead of using unnatural caricatures.

Anyway, I still want that lure
