Wrap colors for a Seeker

Hey, Y'all. I got one of those pea soup/baby gack green Seeker blanks and was wondering what colors to use for my wraps. Is there a traditional color scheme, or do I just do the best I can?

You could always paint it I guess.

 

I picked this rod up at bass pro a few yrs back. The blank looks black on mine, but anyways its called aqua dreams and this is how it was wrapped when I purchased it. Its 7'6 and has 9 guides plus the tip.

I ended up going with a camo look using woodland colored wraps and some tri-colored cord with black, olive and yellow for the butt. I will make it pop with some touches of blaze orange so it doesn't get shot at as I walk through the woods. 
 

So here is my next question: when working with nylon cord, do you seal it or leave it naked? The one nylon cord wrap I have seen did not use a sealer on the cord, but he used that tarred cord, which I assume is already water resistant. My concern is that as this rod is specifically built to fish in the rain, I could end up with a very heavy butt if the cord absorbs a lot of water.

Clarity, like I am capable of it.
