Forgetful fish

Here is a couple of photos taken on a fishing trip with my friend and the most famous fly fisherman and caster in Croatia - Aleksandar Sasa Puskadija. He's a licensed instructor in EFFA (European Fly Fishing Association), from whom you can always learn something useful, not just about fly casting but overall the fishing and journalism. This rainbow was briefly persuaded to bite his fly, and finally took a small dry fly. Few minutes after fish was released back into the river, it was carelessly grabbed flies from the surface, completely forgetting that it was caught about ten minutes earlier. How long the fish remember? Does anyone know a reliable answer? ;) Although there are prejudices that fish remember only a last few seconds, some studies have shown that fish remember the last 3 months, and at the same time very well distinguish between different shapes, colors and sounds. From this we can conclude that this rainbow was very hungry and it was not impressed with the fact that it was just caught by probably the best fly fisherman in Croatia. :)
