“When we go fly fishing, the aim is to hot-wire the biology of a visual predator using thread, fur and feather. Done properly it can create the exact same reaction in a trout as real, live prey. Everything about this challenge relies on entering into a biological system and manipulating it… Why, then, isn’t it more surprising that fly fishers don’t talk, write or make videos about things behavioural ecologists, freshwater biologists and pure ecologists have known for decades? As a professional biologist and professional fly fishing guide, it’s probably time I shared what I know about fishing and mother nature – so you can benefit from being a fly fishing naturalist too.” Dr Paul Gaskell
