It is the story of a fly, the now famous Olive, who goes to school to learn its “future work” and then go fishing.
The story is funny but the real goal is to give the basics of fly fishing to children and grown ups too.

It is a very nice app to give the very basic of fly fishing to youngsters.
The character of Olive is a very good one with feelings and proud. His story is fun from the beginning to the end.
The interactive book is fine while the game is a little weak but all in all it is worth the $1 you’ll spend for your children or your own pleasure.
