People tend to think of fish as having small brains and relate that to them not being to bright, but I have always thought otherwise.
At first I thought I was maybe just getting a little sloppy with my casting or fly tying over the years, or maybe it’s my approach to the water when I am fly fishing, but sometimes it seems tough to catch those trout like I used to. Perhaps it’s because they aren’t as limited to learn as we once thought.
I was just reading a great little article about the memory of a fish. Take a couple of minutes and visit The Bow River Blog and read the article for yourself.
I am sure they are looking at my artificial flies and laughing some day, maybe I need to do a better job to make them appear more real or find murky water.
