60 Minutes Sports segment hints at April Vokey's rise in sport of fly fishing

FLY FISHING -- My Sunday Outdoors feature story sheds some light on April Vokey, the celebrated British Columbia fly fishing guide and founder of Fly Gals Ventures, who was giving presentations in Spokane recently.

But you'll get another glimpse of her appeal and talent in this trailer (above) for a 60 Minutes Sports story that's available for viewing on Showtime.

I’m not a great caster; I’m not a great fly tier; I’m not a great writer; I’m not the best at any of those things," Vokey says in the report.

"Then what makes you so good at this?" asked 60 Minutes Sports reporter Bill Whitaker.

"I love it more than anybody I know."
