About a dozen or so people showed up for a fly tying class for beginners in Sheridan Saturday afternoon.

The class was sponsored by Trout Unlimited, and Krumm, who's a member of that organization, said the classes have been kind of a tradition for a half dozen years in the area.

Krumm said he planned to teach the making of three flies Saturday.

He told those in his class that the sow bug is an invertebrate animal, but not an insect, which is also known as a pill bug and is very, very common in the Bighorn River. In an interview with Sheridan Media before class started, he said Sheridan has a wealth of places where people can go fishing.

Krumm said an advanced fly-tying class was being held Saturday at the Fly Shop of the Bighorns at the same time he was teaching his class. Trout Unlimited was organized in Michigan in 1959 to conserve, protect and restore North America's coldwater fisheries and their watersheds.

The organization has chapters nationwide, including a chapter in Sheridan County. Trout Unlimited member Joseph Barani said that was formed in 1974.
