Fly Fisher, Fly Tyer, Biologist
Peter Stitcher is an Aquatic Biologist and owner of Ascent Fly Fishing and River Oracle Inc. As a biologist, Peter works across the United States in the assessment, restoration, and management of trophy trout waters. Approaching the sport of fly fishing through the lens of a biologist, Peter strives to break down the sciences of entomology, fish feeding behavior, and fish habitat use into easily applied fishing tips and tactics for the fly fisher.
Armed with an extensive invertebrate database and more than 600,000 flies Peter and his team of 45 full-time fly tyers at Ascent specialize in the creation of Biologist Crafted Fly Selections specific to the trout foods and their life-cycles when and where you fish. Peter also just released his first film titled Creating Order in Your Fly Box, and is a regular contributor to High Country Angler Magazine.
