Each pattern is listed with the number of records it holds (or has held). 

Hot Pink/Red flies appear to be the single most successful color combination for large pelagic fish.  Pink is a color that is prominent in Pink/Red, Pink/Black and K.T.s Squid patterns.  These three categories hold 18 of the 37 records listed on this chart.  As expected, blue back and green back silver sided, white belly flies hold most of the rest of the records.
