Thursday, June 14th at 6pm — PRE-REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED – SPACE IS LIMITED!
$10.00 Fee payed to Biologist Peter Stitcher
Attention all Anglers – A special treat for the Fly Fishing Dad! Those that joined us last year, know just how fun and interesting this event was. Peter will take us from last year’s fly hatch cycles to using that information this year to catch more fish
How to Match the Hatch in 2 Minutes!
Join Aquatic Biologist Peter Stitcher as he guides the angler through how to quickly and easily determine what is on the day’s menu and which flies to fish. Using the P.A.U.S.E. Method, Peter will walk the participant through how to sample and interpret the information from the trail, riverbed, streamside, and air over the river to determine which insects are present and the best fly patterns to use. This method is easy to remember and will help you stop guessing and starting catching more fish every trip to the river.
Peter Stitcher is an Aquatic Biologist and the CFG (Chief Fly Geek) at Ascent Fly Fishing and River Oracle Inc. Starting his career as a biologist in the salmon-rich waters of the Pacific Northwest, Peter and his family moved to Littleton Colorado in 2011 to continue his work restoring and managing trophy trout waters. Approaching the sport of fly fishing through the lens of a biologist, Peter’s passion and purpose is to break down the sciences of entomology, fish feeding behavior, and fish habitat into concepts that can be easily understood, tied onto the end of a fly line, and help anglers experience greater success on the water. Through the creation of BIologist Crafted Fly Selections, educational films, and monthly articles, Peter continues to open up the world of trout and the sport of fly fishing in new and exciting ways.
