Bighorn River News: Bighorn Youth Adventure Now in Progress

The Bighorn Youth Adventure, an event sponsored by the Bighorn River Alliance and the Federation of Fly Fisherman (FFF) is now in progress. Twelve teenage anglers from across the country are receiving fly tying and angling instruction during this four-day event. Fort Smith area fishing professionals and fly tackle companies have generously donated their products and services in order to educate and serve the next generation of fly anglers. It is our hope that through this event, young anglers will develop a love for the sport and a desire to be good stewards of our natural resources.

Buz Buzek award winning fly tier, Frank Johnson, instructs the 2010 participants of the Bighorn Youth Adventure. Fly tying class is conducted in the Common Room of the Bighorn Trout Shop.
