Food for thought

Post by Kiwioz » Tue Jul 16, 2019 11:51 am

Interesting article which confirms what serious fishers experience - the need to mix it up at times. ... ish-117364

Cawthron did an interesting study on fishing pressure and trout behavior written up in F & G Nov 1999 by John Hayes and Roger Young - Tony Entwhistle and Peter Boyes being the anglers for the experiment.

Humm, interesting.

To be honest I wouldn't want "easy to catch" fish, so doesn't really worry me. After all isn't the reason that most of us flyfish is because its harder and the rewarding feeling of catching a fish that has taken skill and aptitude?

Case in point, when me and the wife visit the NI, we will sometimes fish the Nongi, after a bit of rain. In those conditions it becomes so easy to catch, it just becomes too boring and we usually end up pulling out and going to do something else.

Still very interesting research & results! :)

Bucking trends in fly fishing since 1970!
