Fly fishing is a life-long pursuit. Izaak Walton, author of The Compleat Angler, first published in 1653, wote that "Rivers and the inhabitants of the watery elements are made for wise men to contemplate and for fools to pass by without consideration." For centuries, wise men and women have found that at the confluence where water, clean air, good friends and trout meet, there is clarity of thought, which is not muddled by the noise of a busy life.

We want to help you progress in your adventure of fly fishing. Take advantage of the opportunities below to take the next step and discover a few more secrets to the art of fly fishing.

301 Aquatic Entomology 2 day Classroom and Streamside Instruction.

 

Lecture Part 1: Wednesday night at Angler's Covey. Almost essential to mastering the sport of fly fishing for trout is a good working knowledge of aquatic insects. This class will help you understand the bug life in a stream as the key to catching more trout. This lecture focuses on the identification and life cycles of key aquatic trout foods found in Colorado's rivers and streams as well as in still water environments. The follow-up to the lecture is the entomology streamside class.

 

Streamside Part 2: The following SUNDAY at Camp Alexander in 11 Mile Canyon. In this class you learn streamside techniques for collecting, identifying, preserving, and curating aquatic insects which occur in both still and moving water environments. Although not required, we highly recommend that students take the Aquatic Entomology lecture before the streamside class. Students will need to supply their own seine (available at Angler's Covey).

Class minimum 4, maximum none. Registration required.

 

Cost:$115 ($90 Class fee + $25 for Lab Supplies)
Location/Times: Classroom 6:00-8:00 p.m. at Angler's Covey, Sunday

 "We may say of angling as Dr. Boteler said of strawberries: 'Doubtless God could have made a better berry, but doubtless God never did'; and so, if I might be judge, God never did make a more calm, quiet, innocent recreation than angling." - Izaak Walton
