    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.

    I found the presentation to be extremely helpful in understanding how to get better at fly fishing. The well organized fly samples really help me understand what to do. Looking forward to trying this new knowledge out.

    This class was very easy to be a part of. Brewery atmosphere was very welcoming. As someone who had lots to learn I didn't feel out of place or belittled at all. Peter was extremely nice and easy to talk to. Lots of good information, only thing better would be to be out on the water - which is also an option and will be my next thing.

    Great Time

    Posted by David on 8th Jun 2018

    This was the first time I have been able to attend a speech or event put on by Peter and Ascent Fly Fishing. The atmosphere was amazing, the information was so dynamic, and overall this is an event I would recommend to anyone interested in fly fishing. Whether you are a beginner to the sport or an avid sportsman, there is information for everyone. Peter covers the material in a way that keeps you captivated and learning the entire duration. Great job Ascent, keep up the good work and cheers to more education, better stewardship of our rivers, and of course more fish... Beer is great too. David

    Oracle Teaching

    Posted by John Handzo on 15th May 2018

    Peter is a great speaker. His passion and knowledge is shared with the attendees who attend a Bugs N Brews presentation. It is worth attending a couple of these presentations to comprehend all the information he is providing. I highly recommend these presentation to all level of fly fishers. Besides, his selection of breweries demonstrates his great taste in beer!

    Bugs and Brew

    Posted by Jay Ruoff on 25th Feb 2018

    I attended the first Bugs and Brews at Living the Dream. The class was very indformative and informal making it easy to understand. While it may be a refresher ther were tips that were thrown out that was new information Peter’s knowledge and his “laid back” style again made things simple Thanks Peter and Ascent Fly Fishing.

    Peter Droppin' Knowledge

    Posted by Brian on 13th Feb 2018

    I had a great time at Bugs and Brews with Peter! Lots of good info. For me, it was a great reminder to pay attention to what our surroundings are telling us. It's how every day of fishing should start, flippin' rocks, and getting out the seine net. The beer were great too. Will definitely attend more Ascent events! See you at the Rendezvous!!!
