Peter Stitcher is an Aquatic Biologist and the CFG (Chief Fly Geek) at Ascent Fly Fishing and River Oracle Inc. As a biologist, Peter continues to work in the assessment, restoration, and management of trophy trout waters across the Western US. Approaching the sport of fly fishing through the lens of a biologist, Peter strives to break down the sciences of entomology, fish feeding behavior, stream dynamics, stream dynamics, and fish habitat use in order to equip the fly angler with an insider’s knowledge, helping them to think like a fish, and fish like a pro. Peter has a regular column, Bug Bites in High Country Angler magazine, and speaks at fly fishing events and club meetings around the US.
