Re: Fish - Smart / Notsmart?
I wasn't asking if they can do advanced math.
I just don't have a better word for what they do.
"Conditioned" implies no free will, and I can take you to a fish that will try for a stump he loves, before you know he's on.
Another fish (shamu) goes straight to the bottom and straight back out, for as many times as it takes, for you to go away.
More than few have a "trick list". A client got to see me with a big brown, who went through all... of his tricks, and I stayed right with him.
Then he decided to climb/crawl over a beaver dam. We stood there with our jaws quite relaxed. Seemed like a smart basterd to me.
Thought you guys would understand.....
Trout 333, the "wonder" is your jedi sense kicking in, when faced by a worthy foe. Who may pull your pants down.
Oh and Dan, you are my new film hero.
Ultimately, it's not catching fish that satisfies, but knowing how.
