Old Fly Fishing Color Names

Every now and again we get a call at Kreinik from someone looking for a color called 015 Caddis Larva Green. That was a color name we used 20 years ago to make colors easier for fly tyers to envision in the days before color charts and websites with color swatches displaying what the colors are. We don't need those names as much and only use one set of color names. This chart shows the color number, old color name and our current color name. In all cases, the color number remains unchanged.
