Bugs For Beginners // November 20th 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

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'.
