Default Remember the science of light refraction

I'm glad to know they're actually in there (always question those fishing reports of multiple 20"+ trout in the park in a single day), but also frustrating as I've never caught a "big" trout in the park. Loads of average fish, but never one of the big boys. Now I've got something to work on.
Everything viewed underwater thru a scuba mask is 25% LARGER and 25%closer.....
Glad my wife missed that day of science classhehe
