How Do Trout Take A Fly?

“So how do trout feed? I delved into my own fishing book library, the public library, and searched the Internet. How much information did I get? Very little indeed. There are literally thousands of books on what, where and when trout feed, but very little that I could find on how trout feed.  What information I could find confirmed that trout do feed by ‘engulfing’ their prey,…” Bish & Fish re the take  

This Trout took a streamer that was being stripped back in a hurry. There was no doubt of the take….the actual ‘how’ can be better explained by Bish. I know that during a day’s fishing, I often ‘miss’ quite a few takes. The why’s of that have been open to speculation (retrieval speed, fly design, ‘far sighted’ fish). Seems the possibilities are endless on the how’s, or are they?

    Here’s a book for you with good info: “The Rise – Streamside Observations on Trout, Flies, and Fly Fishing” by Paul Schullery. The book includes photos that show how a trout takes a fly, describes it very well too.
