Quick Sip: Fishing For Science

No, there's no opportunity here. We all missed our chance.

In an effort to determine if pressured fish are harder to catch, a couple of academic types at the University of British Colombia conducted an angling experiment.
"Three anglers using similar flyfishing gear and two general patterns were let loose. The first lake (Little Pantano) was fished from a boat for four hours every day for 30 days."
Apparently, pressure matters. Hook rates declined. Profound.

The hypothesis for success over pressured fish, equally profound, is to switch patterns. I'm sure you'll all help gather data on this subject during the coming months.

    1. I think we need to put a grant in for further study. Someone I know does that for a living.
