It may come down to volume and frequency. I have lost a lot of my high frequency hearing and can barely hear fly rattles. But I can easily hear the clacking of the buckshot in a big plug.

The VIMS study was done by a team under Andrij Horodysky, who wrote the "Fish Vision" article that is in the 2009 IGFA World Record Gamefishes Handbook starting on page 84. I have never seen the hearing article published but Andrij gave a talk to our fly fishing club a while back and told us the results of the hearing study...which was very similar to the sight study.

If you have not read that vision article you should. It is VERY informative.
