Fishermen Learn Fly Fishing Techniques

Posted: Updated:

DENISON, TX--Some fisherman in Denison got a pretty neat lesson today, and they didn't even need to take a boat out to go fishing. 

Eisenhower State Park hosted the fifth annual "Texoma on the Fly." It was held to help fisherman learn fly fishing techniques they can use to reel in the fish.

Even kids were taught how to catch catfish with this tank. Park workers have been preparing for the event since last Wednesday.

"We had 400 channel catfish, and we tagged four of them and if somebody caught a tagged catfish, they would win a rod reel. We had four fish that were tagged caught," Adam James said, Park Ranger.

"I'm not that good at fishing, and this is probably the first fish I've caught," Nathan Dray said.

The event was free to the public and no fishing license was required to participate.
