Fly fishing expo raises money for charity

LAKE CHARLES, LA (KPLC) - Most of us have been fishing before, but you might not have tried fly fishing yet. Well, now is the perfect opportunity to give it a shot.

The Contraband Flycasters are hosting a fly fishing expo on July 13 and 14 to teach you the art of fly tying and the skill of casting.

The expo is open to the public and will help raise money for the Reel Recovery charity.

Reel Recovery is an organization that takes men with all forms of cancer on free fly fishing retreats.

For more information on the Flycasters event visit the Facebook page, and to learn more about the Reel Recovery organization click HERE.

You can join them at the Isle of Capri starting at noon on that Friday to learn the basics.
