Learning about the aquatic insects that inhabit our rivers and streams is an enjoyable part of the fly fishing journey. There is a diverse habitat found within the riverbed that produces the food sources which allow fly anglers to pursue fish with a fly rod. The Western Rivers Flyfisher entomology class is designed for anglers of all levels who are interested in developing a better understanding of the aquatic underworld. This class will consist of an evening in the shop, and a half-day
on the water. The first class session will be held at the shop from 6:30-8:30 PM. Nick will provide a presentation covering the most important information regarding insect types, insect life cycles, and insect behaviors for fly fishers. The focus will be on the most important insects for anglers who fish in the West. Additionally, the first session will touch upon how anglers can utilize this information to make informed decisions of which fly to choose and how to present it.
The second session will be from 8:00 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the Provo River. The group will use seine sampling to explore the diversity and distribution of aquatic insects on various parts of the Provo river. Learning to identify different types and focusing on those that are the most important to fly fishers. This class is a lot of fun and will be a learning experience for all involved, including the instructor. To sign up just call into or stop by the shop, class fees are $100 per person.
