Some other color combinations are yellow/pink, yellow/chartreuse, pink/chartreuse....you get the picture.
I have also tied in a few short strands of Krystal Flash between the body and the rubber hackle. A few...like four or five. Short....like hook shank length. should stand at a 45* angle. Deepwater darkwater fly. Don't move it. Cast. Let it sink until it disappears . You'll know.
