    Can anyone explain to me how red hooks are supposed to enhance strikes while red line is supposed to become invisible to fish?

    This "gimic" is targeted at fish with very acute eyesite that rely on this sense to find and attack food.............like bass.

    Catfish use primarily smell sensory (spelling) organs that are located all over their body. Yes they have good eyesite, but they don't use it as much as smell when it comes time to eat dinner. Catfish are not line or hook shy so don't worry too much about it!

    I'm sure someone can follow up with more accurate information and add alot more to this. What I know about the Red line being invisible, along with flourocarbon lines is that they are translcuent which means(to shine thru, Admitting and diffusing light so that objects beyond cannot be clearly visible), thus the invisible or low visability quality. The red hooks are painted with a metalic finish which is transparent which means(capable of transmitting light so that objects or images can be clearly perceived in layman terms.. light is reflected off of it giving it a shine that can help with the fishes senses Hope I got it right just what I remember about this.

    Woody,
    According what I have read is, Water filters out certain colors more quiskly then others. The color red is the frist color to be completely filtered . This as it goes under the water as little 3 feet it can be come invisible to the fish and they only see your bait or lure. Hope this helps you out.
    P.S.
    Welcome to the BOC from So.Alabama

    Woody Welcome to the BOC, from So. Illinois. The red hook is solid and the light will not penetrate. The red line lets light go through and makes it transparent.

    Thanks for all the welcomes and the good theories to play with. I'm currently leaning toward that voiced by Crazy256.
