I know my husband has asked for help on this quiz, but now he still only wants one answer and some of you have posted a reply, I am not an expert but looking at the answers posted I do not understand the answers. Some of you suggested "watchet" as the answer but I still can't see why.

The clue is :-
Look out for an angling fly (7)
it does have a colour connection.

Hi Sue.

watchet is a word meaning 'pale or light blue'.
As the previous posters already said, it sounds like 'watch it' (i.e. 'look out') and is also the (partial) name for http://www.fish4flies.com/Wet/Spider_and_Drowning_Daddies/Little_Dark_Watchet">an angling fly.

Good man, JimC! Now I remember. Chambers D gives as a FULL definition WATCHET = A PALE BLUE, A MATERIAL OF THIS COLOUR, AN ANGLING FLY
