There's some great video footage out there of fish hitting flies. Violent rises to subtle sips, trout are the champions of the "take," although I've seen some pike attacks that make me wonder if there's a video yet to be shot featuring these voracious predators.  The advent of drone videography, of [ READ MORE... ]
