How to Pick "The Perfect Fly"

The Drifthook Fly Fishing System is built on the idea that the number of aquatic insects at any given time can determine the successful outcome of your fly fishing trip.

In this lesson, we will go over the breakdown of our Nymph Frenzy fly box and our DHFF Seasonal Hatch Chart to give you the optimal success on the water at any given time.

We will be learning two main things in this lesson:

  1. What are the fish feeding on during any given day during the year?
  2. What pattern will be most successful for that feeding?

Matthew Bernhardt, a third-generation Coloradan, grew up at the forefront of the state’s fly-fishing revolution, enjoying time on the water, side by side with experienced guides and lifelong anglers.

By combining his passion for fly-fishing with input from other experienced fly-fishers and guides and his fine arts degree from Colorado State University, Matthew spent five years carefully developing the Drifthook Fly Fishing System, built to help every angler catch more trout.

When he’s not spending time with his wonderful family, you’ll find him out on the water catching MONSTER trout, and he anxiously looks forward to the day when his kids are old enough to join him there.
