The way people see underwater is different than the way fish see. The species of fish also impact how they see line underwater. I suspect most fish when up close see braid in any color. Some probably don't care or it doesn't register.

I always use a fluoro leader on my braid so it doesn't matter to me. Just my preference.

Thought this was interesting. Seems that white might be best for clear water and green for tannin/stained/muddy water.

I like line I can see - especially when I’m fishing jigs in deep water. I watch the line and see it jump when the jig hits the bottom.

I don't think line color matters a bit - as long as you're using a leader... but it is helpful in another way... I long ago figured out that it would be very handy to be able to tell at a glance what size line was on a given spool (particularly with lots and lots of different reels) and more than one spool for each reel - sometimes with different line sizes for the same reel... So... even back when it was monofilament only - My 10lb line was clear, the 12 pink, the 15 fl. yellow, then back to clear for 20lb and so on....

You can do the exact same with braid - and like I said -very handy to be able to tell what size line is on a given reel... Very handy.

Bob, I've learned to do the same with jigs (you'll remember that from my recent jig order!). I try to do it with braid size, but I'm not as consistent--often buying whatever color is on sale in the weight that I want!
