FISHING -- I've often dreamed of tagging along and fishing the virgin wilderness rivers traveled by the Lewis and Clark Expedition as it explored the West.
Now it's easy to at least get a flavor for it.
A major exhibit of the expedition's fishing experiences – originally created by the Federation of Fly Fishers for it's fly fishing museum in Livingston, Mont. – has been adapted by Sandpoint-based Keokee publishers into an interactive virtual tour at UndauntedAnglers.org.
Lewis and Clark relied heavily on fish to survive their expedition across the unknown tracts of what was to become the continental United States – and they had some sport at it, too.
FFF’s project coordinator, Leah Elwell, said the exhibit was originally created in 2005 for display at the FFF’s Fly Fishing Discovery Center in Livingston.
After downsizing operations, the FFF found a new home for the exhibit with the Missouri River Basin Lewis and Clark Interpretive Center and Trails in Nebraska.
