Clip: Special | 7m 41s | Video has closed captioning.

Central Wisconsin's cold water streams make it the ideal place for fly-fishing and the perfect location for Carrie Frost to open the first large scale fly-tying operation in the country in 1896. Other companies would follow and grow the industry so much that Stevens Point became the "Fly-Tying Capital of the World."
