River Oracle was founded by aquatic biologist Peter Stitcher, with the purpose of equipping anglers to read the cues of the water, assemble that information in their fly box, and quickly choose the best fly pattern.
The world of trout is constantly changing and moving. River levels rise and fall. Trout move from the bottom of the water to the surface, feeding on unknown insects. The angler is left with the perennial questions of “What are they biting on?” & “What flies should I use?” River Oracle has emerged to demystify the world of trout with innovative tools, products, and educational content, allowing the angler to quickly and easily match the hatch and catch more fish every trip to the river. The domain of trout is not as mysterious as we’ve been led to believe. Instead, it is ruled by patterns and cycles, which have been recorded by science.
