Not a bad idea.... I know Jason used to make some neversinks with a little fluorescent orange or red at the end of the thread wraps just at the bend of the hook to get a similar effect and said it worked well. I have a couple and can post a pic later, but again I have to agree with ducky... the original seems to be the best. The only thing I really do different from the commercially made ones is wrap them with more hackle. (5-6+ wraps with two feathers vs 3-4 on commercial ones) They float higher, longer, and get more strikes/do better with a dropper in my opinion. But I'll buy the yellow ones from LRO when I don't feel like tying them and the purchased ones work well too.
