Aquatic Entomology Classes for Fly Anglers
Over the years I have noticed a real interest in aquatic entomology by fly anglers who are new to the sport. 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 spring and summer I’m offering basic “on site” entomology classes that will shorten the learning curve for students and help them make accurate identifications on the water. I’m team teaching the classes with Christine Elder-a naturalist, educator, and biological illustrator who specializes in entomological illustration. She holds a master’s degree in biology from Humboldt State University, with special emphasis on aquatic ecology and pollination biology. It’s Christine’s experience from the biologist’s perspective that will bring these classes to the next level!
