Honoring Our Veterans with Fly Fishing Lessons

blog-Sept-14-2015-1-honoring-veteransEach year I get to spend a day teaching war veterans how to fly fish out at Teton Pines in Jackson, WY.  The event is organized by Honoring Our Veterans of Jackson Hole and I’ve had the privilege of being a part of it for the last three years.  This year I have the rewarding opportunity to teach two of the events.  Today was a group of all women veterans and next Monday I’ll have the men.

 

The ladies caught on fantastically learning to cast and shoot line in short time.  This is great news because tomorrow they will be going on a guided fishing trip on the Snake River. During the afternoon session we put on some flies and picked up a few fish from the ponds.  Good luck tomorrow ladies!
