CANCELLED: Entomology for Anglers Level 1 (Intermediate)

This course is the first of 3 levels of Entomology for Anglers. It is ideal for those who fly fish on a regular basis and who wish to improve their catch by employing course techniques.

This course has been postponed until further notice

Skill Level:



Understanding the life cycle of the flies that are being imitated helps better decisions to be made on what a fish is feeding on, when and where that type of food will be available, and how best to represent that food form. The course will describe certain aspects of the natural fly which can be incorporated into imitations, explain why some flies are more significant than others and why some important flies are often neglected by anglers. It will also involve a field visit to a river site to collect some of the invertebrates the fly-fisher encounters and that the fish may be feeding on. This will be followed by practical advice on how to identify them under the microscope.

Anglers Stuart Crofts and Andrew Dixon, have both fished for England at national and international level and have studied entomology for many years, making them the perfect tutors for this programme.
