I also think fish go for the "positive attributes" and can only explore things by putting them in their mouths. If it taste bad or seems wrong they quickly spit it out...unless there's one of us on the other end of the line waiting to lift that rod : )

Default Re: Do trout See Hooks?!

I must agree w/ TLCREP. As a youth I caught trout on potato chips, tin foil, chewing tobacco, etc. Are they a rational and analytical creature? Depends on who you ask. So, don't take the word of any old fisherman, for we are all know to STRETCH things a bit. I would suggest this instead. If you have a spare fly of the same type, simply cut the hook off a little below where the end of the fly is completed and cast to these same fish. The weight remaining will keep the fly in the proper direction float wise, and if needed add a very small split shot. You can still determine if the fish takes the fly and will answer your own question w/ your own experience. That is the true teacher...at least that has been my experience. Take care.
