We need some cooped up, frustrated ethologist with way too much NSF money to design a blind taste test!

I've periodically questioned whether steelhead avoid bad smells, but then I take a sloppy leak, swig a drink, and smoke my cigar while swinging for a steelhead. That way, when I don't catch fish, I have an excuse. And if I do catch fish, I can pat myself on the back and think I've overcome another challenge............
