FLY FISHING Anglers won't be disappointed in the Driftless Area, five hours from Chicago

VIROQUA, Wis. -- I learned some interesting things about trout on a recent fly-fishing outing in the Driftless Area of southwest Wisconsin. I discovered that trout can't hear, but they can sense vibrations in the water. So tread lightly

They have no eyelids, which means they can't squint. This makes it difficult for them to spot flies in the bright sun. And thanks to a blind spot directly behind them, you can sneak up if you're crafty and drop a faux midge, caddis, scud, mayfly or tiny cricket right in front of their snouts.
