Most folks on this forum take this for granted because of your experience in finding that 10% but I would have to say that knowing how to "read the water" in many different situations is one of the most important aspects of "catching fish" and it is what allows a great presentation and fly selection to work it's magic.
I could not agree with you more. I have seen this many, many times. It becomes more obvious when you are fishing with others in say a reservoir and are only yards apart...
