Tying Better Flies
We recently received an email from a youth services librarian and educator thanking us for all the material we have posted.  She has been running a fun beginner's fly fishing project over the last few weeks and they have been able to use some of our information for their group projects.  
One of the young fly fishing enthusiasts wanted us to see an article that he and his Dad found that they thought was very informational and helpful for youth new to flyfishing.
Please take a look-- I have added it to our resources library as well-- Thanks Dylan!!
