All of us at one point or another have been out on the water and watched fish seemingly jumping all around us, gorging themselves on the thousands of bugs both on and off the water. Like many of us, you’ve taken a few swipes at the bugs in the air, caught one, then asked, “What the hell is this bug”? As fly anglers we’ve all heard the expression “Match the hatch,” yet we continue scratching our heads, casting to fish that don’t seem at all interested in our flies? There is no question that a better understanding of a trout’s diet will help improve your fishing game.
Join Trouts for our Bugs for Beginners class. We’ll help demystify the major food sources trout key on throughout the year. No need to learn Latin here, our class is designed to help you better understand the major insect groups (Midges, Mayflies, Caddis, Stoneflies, Terrestrials and General Attractors) and how to effectively identify and fish them. As part of the class, you’ll take your newfound bug knowledge to the fly bins where you’ll learn to better understand fly selection.
Better yet, you’ll leave the class with the confidence to effectively “Match the hatch” and we’ll even throw in a dozen FREE Flies (Restrictions apply).
