More than 500 people came out for Cheyenne's first fly fishing expo at Lions Park.

Janet Marschner organizer of the event said the event covered anything you want to know about fly fishing.

Fly fishing is an outdoor sport but organizers say it can really have a positive effect on the community.

Bob Reese an eighth grade teacher and a vendor at the event said fly fishing has helped give direction to children who are struggling.

The free event included vendors from across the region, raffles and casting demonstrations.
