Invicta, the top cape on your list is a silver badger variant i.e. not 100% purebred.

I look forward to both learning from and contributing to this highly respected forum.

And rather lovely they all are.

However, head in to your local tackle shop looking - for example - a brown cape. You'll find a rack of perhaps a dozen of them hanging there. You look through them to get just the right one. That's a very light difference from the rest. You prefer it to the others. Do you think it matters one bugger to the trout?
You've been hooked.
