Re: Does blue excite the trout?
I went to a presentation on what and how, trout see. Blue is apparently the colour that they see the best in the darkest water. They of course do not see it as blue at depth but they see it. The course was put on by a fellow who fishes in the Nationa Team here in Canada as well as Internationally. He is pretty successful so I tried to listen. There is a book out I believe called What Trout See I think that I have been meaning to look for.
Each smallest act of kindness - even just words of hope when they are needed, the remembrance of a birthday, a compliment that engenders a smile - reverberates across great distances and spans of time, affecting lives unknown to the one whose generous spirit was the source of this good echo, because kindness is passed on and grows each time it's passed, until a simple courtesy becomes an act of selfless courage years later and far away.
