The following clips from the Underwater World of Trout by (Wendell “Ozzie” Ozefovich. simulate the window.

Here is a trout and its window. A mirror like glare surrounds the window separated by an edge. This edge magnifies organisms as they enter the window.

Here is another shot of the trout with the window, edge and glare. Notice our trout can see the bottom by looking at its reflection off of the glare.

Here our trout is scrutinizing a food organism,

He inhales it.

As the food goes down its throat…

…an angler enters the window, our fish returns to its sheltering lie.

This angler has no understanding of the trout's window. If he did he would stay out of it or at least wear earth tones.

A trout’s primary protection is his vision. Anything appearing in his window that isn't normal will probably spook him.

When you approach the stream, take a moment to analyze it. Fish the prime lies first. Be aware of the window. Don't waste valuable fishing time in water that isn't productive while spooking fish.
