Entomology for anglers 2011 - Scotland


08 April 2011 23:00 - 23:00

Location: Scottish Centre for Ecology and the Natural Environment (SCENE), University of Glasgow, Loch Lomond, Scotland.

Event description

The purpose of this course is to increase fly- fishers' understanding of entomology, which could make a big difference to their catch. 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 to collect some of the species the fly-fisher encounters. 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.

Cost: £50
