A special treat for the Fly Fishing Dad!
Creek Side Gardens is hosting a unique pre-Fathers Day event on Thursday June 13th, at 6 PM. Peter Stitcher is an Aquatic Biologist and the Chief Fly Geek at Ascent Fly Fishing and River Oracle Inc.
Entomology 101- On the Water & In Your Fly Box
Join Aquatic Biologist Peter Stitcher for a journey through the life cycles of aquatic trout foods on the water and in your fly box. In this talk the participant will learn the defining characteristics of Midges, Mayflies, Caddis Flies and Stoneflies on the water and the different types of fly patterns that we tie to match each as they progress through their lives. We will also discuss how to identify each of the major trout foods as they fly over the water just by observing their distinctive flight patterns. After this talk, the participant will be able to quickly and easily identify the naturals on the water, and match the hatch!

Armed with an extensive invertebrate database and more than 600,000 flies Peter and his team at Ascent specialize in the creation of Biologist Crafted Fly Selections specific to the trout foods and their life-cycles when and where you fish.
