  1. Absolutely!!! I have seen this first hand when I have had a great dry on that matched the hatch well, and didn’t get anything. Threw on an emerger (that was actually quite bigger than the dry) and they started hitting it. I sometimes think their desire to not expend energy guides what they are willing to do. I assume (correct me if I am wrong) that going after a spent or bug on the surface takes more energy than sipping emergers in the film or below. And the larger “bug” would provide more nutrients, so they would prefer that. That’s a total guess, and probably would be met with a “bogus” form the Car Talk folks, but I like it.
