About Herring

Herring may not have studied millitary tactics, but it seems like they have understood the essentials… It is a common known fact that confusing the enemy is good tactics when you don`t want to be eaten by others! Mabye that is why the red herring is used in a metaphoric sense of «something used to divert attention from the basic issue.» Figuratively, a red herring is a false lead in a mystery. In this context, red means smoked, and a smoked herring has such a strong smell that it can be used to create a false scent that causes hunting dogs to lose a track.
