    Great Bugs & Brews Seminar on 05/24/2022!

    Posted by Paul Villamaria on 25th May 2022

    Peter's light-hearted presentation style and depth of knowledge made this seminar not only a lot of fun but very, very informative to an intermediate level fly fisher-person like myself. He follows through on what he attests to and that is being a "resource" for all things related to flyfishing, the habitat and the community.

    Go to a Bugs and Brew session with Peter.

    Do yourself a favor and go to one of Peter's Bugs and Brew classes. Well worth it. You learn a lot with like minded anglers, have fun and get to sip a brew or soda. Not a boring class with terms, you can't pronounce or even remember. Lots of tips and tools to help you on the water.

    Great Class!

    Lots of great information on matching the hatch, plus some nice flies to add to your collection! It was definitely worth paying the extra $3 for the class notes to refer to in the future. Thanks for the great class!

    Best introduction to entomology

    Posted by Marie Chantale on 23rd Oct 2019

    I highly recommend this course. It happens in a brewery so you can drink (one drink is included) and there is also a food truck you can buy froid from. Hence as you drink and eat, you listen to a very interesting presentation (beats university any day). The presentation covers the type of insects that are important to Fly fishing, their characteristic, life cycle and what fly « mimics » what. It is super fun and on top of that you get 10 flies. Trust me and go :))

    Great presentation on bugs and how they reproduce and how that effects flyfishing! Hope Peter does other presentations again in Colorado Springs.

    Nerd out about fishing

    Posted by Unknown on 3rd Jul 2019

    I've been to a lot of fishing events but none were as comprehensive as this event. If i can't catch a fish now, it's time for me to pick up another hobby. Greatly informative and essential information to hit the stream with!

    First time attending a class like this, I absolutely loved it. It was very informative and inclusive. The brewery was great as well. I hope to take another one of these classes one day.

    Fun Event disguised as information

    Posted by Gerry Lipka on 2nd Apr 2019

    Very informative as a semi novice fly fisher. Good discussions surrounded by experienced individuals and good beer.The handouts provided a good takeaway and the fly selection was a bonus. I would attend this again.

    This is an amazing deal. Great class, plus a beer and a dozen flies for $25. You're nuts if you pass this up. I may do it again. Great information.
