19th Century Flyfishing Originals

Seasonal volunteer Lance Thorup created and packaged 6 hand-tied flies from the 19th century for sale here benefiting the National Historic Trails Center Foundation.  They are very reasonably priced and will make an excellent father's day gift!  Come get them while they last!
Until the end of the 19th century, every fly was hand-tied utilizing natural fibers, such as silk and wool threads. Pioneers traveling west found Rocky Mountain rivers teeming with trout, and fly fishing made it's way into the history of the migration.

The Making of Our Interactive Tablets

The Trails Center is once again teaming up with ENTOO to bring you an interactive experience here at the Trails Center.  Grab your wagon and supplies and begin your journey west!  Will you be heading to California, Oregon or the Salt Lake City?  Will you have enough provisions to last throughout your journey?  Will you die along way or make it to the end?  Get ready for some weather!  Also, see if you can find items in each gallery!  Open House for the launch is March 22, 2018.
