Product Description

If my college classes had been held at breweries, I may not have gotten A's, but I certainly would have showed up more often! 

Join Aquatic Biologist and Fly Fishing Geek Peter Stitcher at a brewery near you to learn how to Match the Hatch while sipping on your favorite craft brew.  We are partnering with breweries and taprooms across the Rockies for this 1-1/2 hour talk on entomology for the fly fisher and matching the hatch.  Participants will each receive 10 flies and a beer with their ticket.  Aided by high-resolution videos, animations, and craft brews, you will learn how to identify every bug in, on, and around the river and quickly match it to the best fly patterns in your box.   Whether you are just learning to fly fishing or are a seasoned angler, this class will help you dial in what the fish are feeding on and how to choose the best fly patterns to fish. 

Talks go from 6:00 -8:00 pm.  Seating is limited and this talk is always moving locations, so don't miss your chance to join us at your favorite brewery!

Scheduled classes:

Blue Moon Brewing - 3750 Chestnut Pl, Denver, CO 80216 - Thursday March 1st 6 - 8pm 

The Oak Room at Oskar Blues Brewing - 1800 Pike St, Longmont, CO 80501 - Thursday March 8th 6-8pm

  1. 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!!!
