Unique fly fishing app matching the hatch on all rivers in the Western U.S.

Match A Hatch will tell you what fly you're seeing hatching on the river and suggest the correct artificial to use. Simply, tap on one of the the Mayfly, Sedge, or Caddis images and the app will do everything else. Touch the fly that looks closest to the one you see on the river, then slide the image over to reveal the correct artificial and information about the fly. Manipulate the image with your fingers to get maximum close ups of the stunning images taken from the live flies.

That's it. You are now fishing with a lifetime's worth of knowledge, letting you deepen your knowledge and enjoyment of fly fishing.

Match A Hatch will enable you to:
+ identify any fly you see on the river
+ correctly pair that fly with an artificial
+ learn the names of the flies both Latin and in English
+ learn the characteristics of the fly
+ see astonishing hi-res images of the flies.

I would LOVE this app... Except I don't. It has the right idea and it's almost there. It needs an incredible update. There is an app called "The Hatch" that has it down. I love this app but it has a lot left to desire. I hope it gets better, especially because it costs actual money. They're on the right track, but it needs more. More suggestions for flies, more options for imitations, more intimate suggestions per river, more everything. "The Hatch" breaks down each month, river by river... It also has numerous suggestions for each fly. I don't know what happened to "The Hatch," but it doesn't show up on the App Store any longer. If this app had that information, it would be perfect. However, until then, it's not worth a penny. By the way, this is the first review I've ever left. I just feel particularly strong about this one. Don't waste your money. This one is on the right track, but it NEEDS A SOLID UPDATE!



I like this app, but it doesn't go far enough. It's a great start but needs to offer more than one fly choice for each listed insect. It will help fly fisherman who need an idea about which fly to use for a hatch that's occurring. Looking forward to updates that may expand the app's fly choices.

Don't Waste Money


This app just is not worth a dollar!
