How to Match the Hatch in 2 Minutes

Peter Stitcher is an Aquatic Biologist and owner of Ascent Fly Fishing and River Oracle Inc. As a biologist, Peter works across the United States in the assessment, restoration and management of trophy trout waters. Approaching the sport of fly fishing through the lens of a biologist, Peter strives to break down the sciences of entomology, fish-feeding behavior, and fish-habitat use into easily applied fishing tips and tactics for the fly fisher. Armed with an extensive invertebrate database and more than 400,000 flies, Peter and his team at Ascent specialize in the creation of Biologist Crafted Fly Selections specific to the trout foods and their life-cycles. Peter also just released his first film titled Creating Order in Your Fly Box, and is a regular contributor to High Country Angler Magazine.
