here is a nice Koi I caught a few years ago.

Wait a second....are you telling me that your orange Koi carp is aware, or it learned of it's vulnerability to predators because it knows how easily it can be seen by it's color? You gotta be kidding me.
Sinkline said:From the book I have quoted several times in this thread (Carp in North America), they claim carp are the smartest, most evolved fish that swim. For comparison, that book claims a carp's intelligence is on par with the average bovine. Think about that for a second...., the smartest fish that swims has the intelligence of a cow in the pasture! Now..., how smart is the average angler that struggles to catch a lowly "dumb" trout? Hehehehe!
