H-A, I will just note that the diagram shows what it is posssible for a trout to see. However, when they are concentrating on the drift of succulent mayflies, the "cone of concentration" is much smaller than the cone of potential vision. Trust me. I was a trout in a former life.

Hard to add much else.
If color didnt matter, then why have different colored flies? Why would they make a difference? For the best fish, leave the pretty shirts at home.
As far as the Letort goes, when a particular fish has snubbed you on numerous trips, approach from the least diserable access point you see. Thick muck, heavy branches, whatever, while still employing the other tactics described. Its tough and you dont always get more than one or two shots but when you do, theres fish there that JayL moved all the way to Montana to catch.
