Fly Fishing Traditions – Match the Hatch Class

Blue Wing Olive & Pale Morning Dun Mayflies

April 2nd – 10:00 to 1:00

I have been working with Tom Page of the Reel Anglers Fly Shop for years and have come to an agreement for me to help the shop with it’s classes, workshops and other educational opportunities.  Doing “Tailgate Talks” on Saturday mornings about once a month will be part of the new program. So without further ado.

Come on down to the Reel Anglers Fly Shop for a “Tailgate Talk” about the Blue Wing Olive Mayflies and the Pale Morning Dun Mayflies. These two bugs are ones that you need to be familiar with as they are sought after by our local trout. You will learn how to identify the bugs, their biology, and their life cycle. You will discover what portions of the river they are found. We will discuss the hatch progressions and what techniques to use to find the fish during these progressions. Last but not least, we will match the hatch with recommendations of flies to use, nymphs, floating nymphs, cripples, emergers, duns and spinners. We will share how to build a fly box to be ready for these two important mayflies.

Best of all it is free!!!! Drop by the Reel Anglers Fly Shop and sign up so we can plan ahead. The spots are limited. So don’t miss out!

You can email me at to let us know you’re coming.

Or you can stop by the Reel Anglers Fly Shop and talk to Tom.
