Default Orange yarn and Pompano

I have found that tying a small piece of bright orange yarn close to hook eye helps when surf fishing for pompano. I figured since sand flea eggs are bright orange this trick might work. I tried this trick several times and have actually caught pompano with out a sand flea on just the yarn. I noticed that I was catching them when others around me were not.

It makes sense and will have to try it. I sometimes use chunks of foam pool noodles threaded onto the eye of the hook to produce the same results as using small floats and it has worked as well.

Small sections of bright orange rubber tubing used to keep eye glasses on works too. Walmart used to sell them in the fishing section.
