Bob at the Bench      Bob Jacklin has been serving West Yellowstone fishermen for thirty five years out of the fly shop. A world class fly fisherman, fly caster, and fly tier, Bob has taught countless people how to fish and cast with flies. He is the President of the Rocky Mountain Council of the Federation of Fly Fishers(FFF), is one of the first certified master casters, and one of the finest people and fishermen you could ever meet. Here Bob sits at his fly tying room at home where he still ties his patterns for his shop. On  October 23,  2004  Bob Jacklin was inducted into the Fly Fishing  Hall of Fame.
