Hundreds cast their lines for Fly Fish Texas

ATHENS, TX (KLTV) -

Many came out to fly fish. And, others came out to learn the trick of the trade.  It was all part of Fly Fish Texas.

Aspiring fly fishers received lessons in casting the line...but that was just the tip of the iceberg.

"Understanding what it takes to just start out fly fishing. They've got fly tiers teaching people how to tie flies today," said Bob Cappallo. Cappallo was one of many volunteer instructors at the event.

Visitors were able to tie those lessons into the craft of fly fishing.

"It's just a real neat place to go, you know? A lot of family fun," said Austin Norman.

Norman participated in a fishing course and told us Fly Fish Texas is the perfect place to try out his new skills.

"You got a lot of room. You got a lot of fish. They stock it with trout...stock it with bass," Norman said.
