Upcoming Events

May 18, 2015

Peter Stitcher presentation on Practical Entomology for the Angler. Peter will break down the characteristic of all of the major families of aquatic invertebrates and then help the participant to bridge the gap into their fly box. After this talk, you should be able to determine the family and life stage of a bug you sample on the water, and the flies in your box to match them. Ascent Fly Fishing's dual purposes are: to make the practical understanding of entomology, fish behavior, and aquatic habitat available to everyone, and to purposefully apply that knowledge for greater success on the water.
