Angler's Entomology Podcast

Welcome to the Angler's Entomology Podcast.  On this podcast and blog, I am documenting my re-entry into the world of entomology.   Join us as my wife and I explore the environment in which trout live and the insects and other creatures that live in and share that space.  This is not just a dry recitation of facts, I hope to bring these creatures alive - show you how they live, what makes them fascinating in their own right, and help you understand how they interact with trout in ways that will help your fishing.  So, please join us.  I hope you enjoy the program...

Episode 35: Pics and Patterns for Crane Flies

Jul 14, 2019

Hi folks,

Part of the delay in getting this episode out was fishing (I knew you'd understand).   On the positive side, that fishing gave me the opportunity to get some good pictures of crane flies while I was out there.   

This is one of my favorites - mostly because it shows what night collecting with a UV light can be...
