The clinic is designed for recent Fly Fishing School graduates and members new to the sport.

This aquatic entomology outing consists of two parts:
1. Field portion in Clear Creek (Clear Creek Canyon)
2. Group discussion (at New Terrain Brewing Company)

Members are encouraged to bring their fly boxes. We’ll collect bug specimens and retire to the brewery to gather around a table.

Participants will be provided specimen vials, labels and handouts during the clinic and a detailed email beforehand.

Practical discussions will center on trout food, their imitations and fishing tactics. Clinic ‘moderators’ are Steve Dohnal and myself.

While not bug experts, Steve and I have lots of experience fishing in Colorado. We’ll expand on FF School basics, without Latin name dropping or designer fly patterns.

There is no charge to attend the clinic. Food and beverages at New Terrain Brewery are optional.


Members and instructors seined Clear Creek. We collected lots of bug samples and discussed the results. Afterwards, at a Golden brewery, instructors demoed their fly boxes and offered suggestions.

Sorry it is past the registration deadline for this event.
