Trouts taste & touch

In trout, these two senses are interrelated. Some anglers think that because this is such a secondary sense to trout that it is not worth mentioning. However, I have noticed trout both taste and touch to determine if a food source is real. They may nibble on bait or rub their body against it to see if it is real before taking a real bite. For some anglers, this may seem to indicate a botched catch but if you are patient, the trout may just come back for more, allowing you to get him.
