Robert Younghanz, THE BUG GUY
Bringing “ORDER” To Your Fly Boxes
The science of Fly Fishing begins and ends with a solid understanding of what fish are eating and what flies best imitate these food sources. The Bug Guy will help you categorize your fly boxes systematically, utilizing the fundamental principles of entomology and biological “orders”, i.e. Mayflies, Stoneflies, Caddisflies and more! Go from jumbled and messy fly boxes to organized ones base on science, in no time!
