How Does a Trout Catch a Fly?

Marinaro's "Edge of the Window Theory"
Anglers often ask "What fly will catch a trout?". This video turns that question on its head and explores how a trout recognizes and intercepts a fly drifting towards it on the surface of the water. The answer gives an insight into how to design effective trout flies and why our artificial flies are sometimes ignored by feeding trout.

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
