Default Re: Sight fishing or blind fishing?

Frank, the style of "logic" fishing you use is how I get most of my "one drift fish". A very effective approach.
Put the fly where they should be, first try, and bingo!!!
An aside, for sight challenged folks (not just you), try a pair of bino's to get a closer look at more water, without investing as much walking/casting. Just slowly glass the spots you would hang if you were a fish. Noses, sip rings, bulges, backs, tails etc. are much easier to see. If I was rich (ha), I would purchase a polarized pair. Then they'd have nowhere to hide!!!!
Also, it keeps one back from the water where the fish can't see you.
Like Ard implied, don't let'em see you, and fish scores will go up.
Finally, last winter I used some white camo, to get closer, without spookin' them. Seemed to help.
