The World's Largest Fishing Fly has been worked on and made into a Royal Wolfe. It has been hung close to the ground so family photos can be taken with the fly.

This no longer is there! We were driving through and wanted to see it, but it looks like they took it out.

[Stacie, 08/11/2017]

The Fly was purchased in May 2017, then loaded onto a truck and moved to a new home: a fly fishing business just north of the Flaming Gorge Dam.
