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...

I'm setting up a new set of Quizizz pages to help you learn about different insect groups.  I'll be honest - the best way to learn insects is to look at a lot of insects.  So, give these a whirl and don't get discouraged if you do poorly.   Just try again every so often.   The quizzes will be tiered- so they will get more detailed and complicated as we increase in levels.   The first ones are just about learning the different orders.    

This first quiz is about identifying the four major aquatic insect orders

Quiz #2 is a continuation on Mayfly, Stonefly, Dragon and Damselfly, and Caddisfly Orders. 

This Quiz includes other orders of insects that are important to anglers, but is only the adults.

Today we will discuss the Fishflies, Alderflies and Dobsonflies - who make up the order Megaloptera.  They may not be the most important group for fishing overall, but at certain times and locations you may very well come across trout eating them.   And they are fascinating - I mean really, what's up with those whacko...

No, not some obscure mayfly species, but the inventor of the Binomial System of Nomenclature - the language we all use to communicate about all this wonderful diversity.  Ever feel confused about all these latin names?  Well, this podcast will clear all that up.  Honest.

I will start releasing these on an about monthly schedule.  So, this month we are talking about order Plecoptera, the stoneflies.  A relatively primitive group of insects, whose metamorphosis, behavior and lifestyle make them important insects for fly fishing.  We'll talk about white nymphs, behavioral drift and even...

Today we will explore dragonflies. While maybe not the most important insect for fly fishing, they are fascinating.  We'll learn about their development, survival strategies, eyesight and migration.  Enjoy the program.

Welcome to the Angler’s Entomology Podcast.  In our first episode, I’ll give  you a very brief bit of info about who I am and why I’m doing this podcast. I wanted to take what I knew (entomology) and provide enough background, trivia and history to make time on the water more rich.  In other words, I hope through...
