Wyoming Fly Casters teach residents how to fly fish

CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) The Wyoming Fly Casters have been around for decades. They held their cabin fever event every year until about 10 years ago. It was brought back last year and is a tradition they hope to continue.

Wyoming Fly Casters members teach people how to fly fish at the Casper Rec Center.

"A lot of people here that I've interacted with today have never even held a fly rod, much less gone fly fishing. There's a really big sense of gratitude to be able to actually put these events on and have people show up," Sarah Baird, WFC Vice President, said.

Baird said seeing the rods in peoples hands, is a powerful feeling.

"It's like when you see your kids walk for the first time, you just feel such a sense of accomplishment that you're able to help these people learn a new skill," Baird said.

Baird learned fly fishing from her father and hopes people learning, enjoy it as much as she does.

For those wanting to continue learning, the next step is to become a member and go on a fishing trip. WFC are always looking for new members.

WFC meets every third Wednesday of the month at Gruner Brothers and all are welcome.
