This part of Wyoming is known for its fly fishing opportunities and Trout Unlimited sponsored a fly tying clinic Saturday for those fly fishing enthusiasts.

Over twenty fly fishers showed up for the clinic to learn from the pros. Bob Krumm, a fishing outfitter at Fort Smith during the fishing season, says learning to tie your own flies is just a logical expansion into the sport.

Fly tying is more than just fooling fish. Krumm says it taps into your creativity.

Dorie Thoma enjoys fly fishing up in the Big Horns with her husband, Ken. Always wanting to tie her own flies, the clinic was her opportunity to learn.

Krumm explains what makes an effective fly fisher.

Other instructors included Frank Johnson, Paul Dubus and Gordon Rose.
