In the class, you will learn the different identifying features of aquatic insects. We will explain the life cycles of Mayflies, Caddis, Stoneflies, Midges and Terrestrials. We will show you different fishing techniques and fly patterns for each life cycle.

At the end of the class you will be able to identify the most common insects in our local Western US Rivers.
