Hi Folks, 

 

Been a long long time since I've posted here, been wrapped up in other ventures lately.  But I've put together a few things you may be interested in.  Both are free, and I"m not making money off of this, so I don't think this counts as an advertisement.  Anyway, I have a background in entomology, and have fished for years, so I put the two together and made a podcast about entomology as it relates to fly fishing.   It's called Angler's Entomology Podcast and can be found at these sites:

Secondly, for my wife and my entertainment I made a "quizup" called Angler's Entomology.  Quiz-up is an app that gives you trivia quizzes on different subjects.   This one has pics of bugs, flies, and asks for ID, scientific names, and some silly trivia.  I think it is a good tool in terms of learning life stages and insect identification by sight.   It has about 200 questions online, and I'll add more probably this spring once I take more bug pics.   You can download it on the app store or find it here:

Anyways, hope I'm not breaking any site rules, if you enjoy the podcast and/or the quizup pass it along.  I hope you enjoy them. 

 

Cheers,

eric
