coloured shockleaders make it easier to untangle stuff (well, as long as you don't get rigs and hooklengths the same colour, they do.) I think the fashion was set by the casting over grass types as it makes finding their cracked off failed casts easier to find.
Fish don't seem to mind any colour.

I use orange leader in the winter, and red ice 18lb main line, the advantage is it makes it easier to see. I also have noticed that colour makes no difference to catch rate. (still rubbish!)

i use a hi-vis leader at night and in the winter that way you can tell where your gear is in the surf if a fish is on,its just for visibility.summer when the waters are alot clearer i change over to a clear shockleader.doesnt make any difference ive found to my catch rate
