FLY FISHING ENTOMOLOGY WORKSHOPS

Fly Fishing Entomology Workshops on the North Fork Yuba River with Baiocchi’s Troutfitters

Over the years I have noticed a real interest in aquatic entomology by fly anglers who are new to the sport or those that are experienced yet have not taken the time to learn about the bugs. Understanding the insects and non insects that reside in and around our rivers and lakes will give the newcomer the knowledge it takes to make accurate decisions on fly selections and presentations. This summer I’m offering basic “on site” entomology classes that will shorten the learning curve for students and help them make accurate identifications while on the water. Understanding trout food will bring more success to any angler, and broaden their horizon to the fascinating world under the currents.

The class is limited to 6 students, price: $100. Payment in full secures your spot.
