PRO TIP TUESDAY: nymphing is kind of like the matrix. You have to slow the things way down. The combination of getting the proper DEPTH, SPEED, PROFILE and COLOR is the difference from picking up a fish here and there verses having a lights out day. In order to dial in the speed, depth, profile and color, the master angler must SLOW down. Find the matrix; find the flow; find the fish. Tight lines. @grennedy @thayer.janes #wyomingflyfishing #montanaflyfishing #tugisthedrug #goodtugs #browntrout #trout #wyominganglers #flyfishingaddict #flyfishing #trout #troutfishing #flyfishingnation

Thanks for playing this week’s Match the Hatch Monday. While the Pale Morning Dun and Pale Evening Dun mayflies are members of different families, they are largely similar in size and profile, allowing them to be matched by many of the same fly patterns. Both families can be found in streams and rivers across the United States and emerge throughout the summer and fall. The emerger patterns for these families can be particularly productive as the nymphs break cover and attempt to make it to the surface and hatch. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ @buddhabob2hanlubo⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #AscentFlyFishing #FishingLife #FlyTying #FishingPhotography #TroutBum #NaturePhotography #Trout #Tightlines #CatchandRelease #FlyFishingNation #Bigfish#GuideLife #Adventure #Weekend #GetOut #FlyFishJunkie #HighCountry #TugIsTheDrug

You can go into any fly shop to be sold a random selection of flies, and more likely than not, as soon as you reach the water you will have forgotten what each pattern is meant to represent and when to fish each one. Ascent Fly Fishing is here to dispel the blank stares into cluttered fly boxes, and to answer the ever present question of which fly to fish. We spend more time with our heads underwater than above it, and yes, we have been known to taste a few bugs to better understand the mind of a trout! @grobeanglers ・・・ #butterbrown #simmsfishing #trout #nature #wildbrowntrout #flyfishing #grobeanglers #troutbitten #catchandrelease #letthemgosotheycangrow #trout #livethemountainlife #explore #hikeforit

The Fly Geeks from Ascent Fly Fishing are bringing their bug smarts to Left Hand Brewing in December!⠀ ⠀ 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.

Thanks for playing this week’s Match the Hatch. Without a doubt, the most important moving water mayfly species in the trout's diet is the Blue Winged Olive (BWO). With numbers topping thousands of BWO nymphs per square meter on the bottom of many of our rivers, and as many as two generations of mayflies hatching per year, trout will actively feed on every part of this mayfly's life cycle. Topped with a brass beadhead and a little flash to help it shine through cloudy water, the Beadhead Flashback Barr's Emerger has earned its stripes in the field and on the water, making it one of the most popular and effective mayfly emerger patterns on the market. Tied small in olive or cream, the Beadhead Flashback Barr's Emerger is one of our favorite patterns for matching the emerger life cycle of the BWO, PMD, Sulphur, and Cahill mayfly families. @buddhabob2hanlubo #matchthehatch #flyfishing #entemology #bugs #flyfishingaddict #trout #troutfishing #river

Thanks for playing Match the Hatch. For all intents and purposes, caddis flies are aquatic moths. Like their terrestrial cousins, the caddis have larva and pupa life stages in which they are vulnerable to feeding trout and among the chief sources of food in many lakes and rivers. These relatively poor swimmers are easily dislodged by high flows, making them available to feeding trout, and a must have for the warm weather fly fisher! The fly patterns included in this selection are: Jelly Cord Caddis Larva - Green & Yellow Better Buckskin Beadhead Breadcrust Chewee Caddis Emerger - Olive, Tan, & Cinnamon Z-Wing Caddis - Olive & Tan Sparkle Caddis Pupa - Olive & Tan https://ascentflyfishing.com/wet-caddisfly-selection/ @buddhabob2hanlubo #matchthehatch #colorado #flyfishing #trout #troutfishing #flyfishingnation

PRO TIP: Don’t be afraid to get stoned. We’re not talking about blowing the trout whistle. Although for some superstitious Anglers, this technique definitely works. We’re talking about tying on patterns such as Pat’s Rubber Legs and #14 pheasant tails. Not only are these choices great to get to the bottom of the feeding lane, these patterns will produce many hook ups for hungry fish. Yes, even this time of year. So get stoned. @eddywittry #flyfishing #colorado #stonefly #matchthehatch #flyfishinglife #trout #troutfishing #troutbum
