Trout TV for Spring Hatch Prep

Are you ready to decipher those spring bug hatches and resulting trout behaviors? This awesome 30-minute Orvis video is one-stop shopping for your spring trout intel. Don’t miss it. You’ll even learn why Tom’s hat is off. 😉


The show is a great refresher for all of us veterans. More importantly, it’s a must-view for any new flyfishers pursuing trout this spring. Have you ever had a more enjoyable homework assignment?

Orvis guru Tom Rosenbauer guides us through the four major insect families in simple and fun terms. He also reminds us how to interpret trout behavior, including rise forms, so we will tie on the right fly and match the hatch. Orvis casting master Pete Kutzer leads us through the reach cast, so that we’ll get that drag-free drift of our flies that picky spring risers often demand.

All that and more in some scenic, exciting onstream video clips - what more could we ask for?  Except that thick caddis or mayfly hatch on our very next trip to trout waters. Watch this TV show and you’ll cash in on the action to come!

Special thanks to midcurrent.com for digging this show back up, 


and to Orvis for its production. 


Now we’ll all be ready to match the hatch!
