Neither....if no fish are in the water that you are fishing. After that it has to be presentation.

With the multitude of different currents in an area, you sometimes have to cast several times and change position of your cast just to get a fish to take (especially trout).

If the food is just thrown on your plate and does not look like you thought it should, it will not taste the same even though it was made the same way, and you may not eat it.
You may not eat anyway no matter how good it looks because you are just not hungry. IMO trout are the same way. At times no matter how good the fly or presentation they do not want it. Period.

I bet it is rare when any trout says: "No, I'm too full."

I think that maybe an excuse for those who don't catch any. "There just not hungry."

It's a phase of the learning curve. We've all been there.

Presentation by far. You will catch many more trout on the "wrong fly" than you will with bad presentation / drift.


Could not agree more. Of course many of us strive for the right fly AND the right presentation. This usually leads to a great outing.

In fact I was using that line (Not hungry) at Nashimany since they just recently stocked it. (It's more of a Trout Shell Shock Syndrome I believe that led to the poor catch ratio for everyone there.) U know...Change in water temp, new surroundings etc.

Even we hesitate to eat or look at a menu when we see a Roach Coach (vending truck) even though we are hungry. We would rather go to a restuarant we are familiar with.
