Is it the Lure or Fishing Confidence

Hey Guys
Surprise! Trout season opened early in Pennsylvania! So I took my ultralight setup out last night for about an hour. Nothing doing until I went with my favorite lure. After tying on my Daiwa Crusader 2.5 gm green par spoon my evening immediately changed. Big rainbow on next cast. Sweet! A few casts later i caught a nice brook trout. Full disclosure, I also missed a brook trout. Where is the fun if you catch a fish on every strike? I consider myself a good trout fisherman. Better now with using Chris' products but still a work in progress.

So my question is is it the lure? Or do we fish more confidently when we have a go to lure which results in more strikes/catches?
