I haven't been fly fishing for too long or exclusively, however, I have noticed an odd behavior while nymph fishing under a strike indicator. Have any of you had a problem with trout taking you strike indicator? This has happened a dozen or so times through out the year, and always with a orange pear shaped indicator. Also there was never a hatch going on and it always seemed to be the biggest fish in the given hole, which then spooked all the other trout around. Initially it was happening in late spring leading me to believe that the trout have mistaken it for a salmon fly, but the last time it happened was the first weekend in August. I am confused any experiences????????
