At one point or another, we have been on the water and watched fish seemingly jumping all around us, gorging themselves on the thousands of bugs. As fly anglers, we’ve heard the expression 'Match the Hatch', yet we continue scratching our heads while casting to fish uninterested in our flies. Without question, a better understanding of a trout’s diet will help improve your success with fly fishing.
Our Trouts Bugs for Beginners class will help demystify the major food sources trout key in on throughout the year. We will focus in on Midges, Mayflies, Caddis, Stoneflies, Terrestrials, and general attractors. Our class is designed and purposed to help you better understand the major insect groups Including how to effectively identify and fish them. You will leave our class with the capabilities to successfully 'Match the Hatch'.

Catching a trout on a fly you tied is without a doubt one of those most rewarding experiences this great sport can offer. This class is mindfully built towards the beginning fly tier and will cover general terminology, tool identification and application, basic materials and their uses -and then the best part - tying flies! Upon completion of the class, you'll walk away with different fly patterns that are ready to fish on our local waters!
