West Yellowstone Kids do some learning and fly fishing

 

From the West Yellowstone News comes a great article.

Science class had a fishy twist to it last Tuesday as 18 West Yellowstone School students participated in the Take-a-Kid Fishing Program.

The eighth-grade science and Biology II classes, along with teacher Sara Hoovler, hopped on a bus and met up with 12 volunteers for a day of guided fly-fishing on the Madison River.

Vehicles brimming with a variety of flies, waders, fly rods, boots and extra layers of clothing were lined up at the Three Dollar Bridge parking area as students got off the bus and suited up for the water.
