I'm not so sure that that ever was the case. Going back as far as fifty-five years ago trout fishing in the Catskills, and depending how I was fishing a nymph, feeling a tap sometimes came in handy. But way more fish were caught at the end of the day not by feeling them at the business end, but by how my line acted in the water. Guys who were good at that caught fish....fish they would never had any idea were there had it not been for their keen observance of that line. Enter the strike indicator era!

No matter how hard I try, I'm having trouble with that one.
