It was a satirical answer.  I get kick out of people who swear by the intelligence/difficulty of catching trout without tiny flies and spider web tippets ... then turn around and say the details of a fly don't matter.

Either they CAN see those tiny details, or they can't.  And if they can't, then the tiny flies and tippets aren't really necessary either.

I'm not denigrating anyone ... you are catching fish with your methods and more power to you.  Just voicing my opinions.

Sorry I'm late to the party. It probably really doesn't matter any more but here I go.

Trout and any kind of fish or any kind of animal are individuals. A blanket statement like Trout are as easy to catch as sunfish" is problematic because it falls under the heading of generalizing.

Some trout can be as easy to catch as sunfish. But, some trout can be much harder to catch than sunfish usually are.

Some flies....  for saltwater and a couple bass poppers

The "paint job" on those poppers makes my mouth water (the rest is obviously nice too!)  Beautiful work!
