To anyone out there; the Serendipity-kinda of a dumb question but i've been told a dumb question is a question unasked. What does this imitate and what colors do you recommend? Red, Green, Tan?

I haven't used that pattern so I'm not very familiar with it, but based on googling it, it seems to be intended to imitate a caddis pupa, or sometimes a midge pupa. Therefore the colors and size that work best would depend on what's hatching at the time. I would guess olive is a good overall bet.

I've never seen one that wasn't an olive brown color.

I always assumed they were midge pattern, but I guess they could be a small caddis. I've only fished them in 18-22 sizes.
