“Catching fish is not a mental game between fish and angler.
A “smart” trout is only smarter than other than other trout, not smarter than a fisherman. An angler must take the puzzle of the day’s conditions, and matching those conditions and his knowledge of the fish come up with a good catch.
He competes with a concept, not with a fish’s brain.”
– Lee Wulff, ‘Some Fishing Basics’ in Rod and Reel Magazine, January 1981
