LET'S CONSIDER PERCEPTION (part 2)
In my last Reader's Cast article I wrote about how we perceive objects in our environment. Our brains rely on shape and behavior to quickly identify objects that we encounter. We don't need to stare intently at objects that we routinely encounter in order to identify them. Likewise, it seems logical that fish use the same system when determining if something they encounter is food or not. If it has the general shape of a food item and it moves like a food item then it must be a food item. However, what about color? How does the color of the object affect their reaction?
Sometimes it's about the flies ...

Tied a collection of flies based on a productive pattern in a random and wide variety of color combinations, none of which I would normally tie, or even come close to considering if I were really going out to catch some fishies.
But in the name of science ( to the extent that limited anecdotal evidence proves anything ) here are the flies for tomorrow.
