Ever have one of those days where you just can’t figure out what the trout are eating?

Selective trout can make you crazy but there is a way to figure out for sure what they’re keyed in on. Taking a stream sample is quick and easy and it really gives you a leg up on the fish. With a bug seine you can sample nymphs from the bottom, emergers from the film and spinners or adults from the surface. Match the size, color and profile of your fly to the insects you find and you’ll be into fish.

Paint strainers make great bug seines. They’re cheap and easy to store in your pack or boat. Stretch one over your net and you’re in business. You can get yours HERE.

Check out this video and learn to sample bugs on your water.

  1. I’m trying to be more deliberate in my approach to water and something like this has the potential to help immensely. Thanks.

  2. Weighs nothing… easy to bring along… fun thing to do for yourself and especially when teaching newbies. Grandkids love it. Instant learning.

    Find an Adopt-A-Stream effort near you and go along while they test water and collect and ID bugs. What you learn about the stream and the bugs will be incredibly valuable. It makes you much more observant as a fisherman.
