What I forgot to mention was that the fish was not lunging at whatever he was eating, he was sipping them from the surface. If you didn't see him sip and the slight ripple it triggered, you wouldn't have seen him because the ripple dispersed quickly. When he sipped the gnat I set the hook because I wasn't sure what he did but when the hook got set, there was a fish on! Most fish I've caught slapped at the fly with a splash before they took it!
"I fish because I love to; because I love the environs where trout are found; because trout do not lie or cheat and cannot be bought or bribed or impressed by power, but respond only to quietude and humility and endless patience...because only in the woods can I find solitude without lonliness..." Robert Traver 1964 (Judge John Voelker)
