Advanced entomology class
Although not required, we highly recommend that students take the Aquatic Entomology lecture before the streamside class.
2 part class. Part one in the shop, part 2 on the river.
Almost essential to mastering the sport of fly fishing for trout is a deep knowledge of aquatic insects. This class will help you understand the bug life in a stream as the key to catching more trout. This classroom lecture focuses on the identification and life cycles of key aquatic trout foods found in Colorado’s rivers, streams, and still water environments. The follow-up to the lecture is the entomology streamside class.
The streamside portion of the class introduces techniques for collecting, identifying, preserving, and curating aquatic insects which occur in both still and moving water. Students will need to supply their own seine (available at Angler’s Covey). Streamside location is dependent upon conditions and will be determined just prior to the class. The class minimum is 4, maximum none. Registration required.
