Honoring Our Veterans

blog-Sept-19-2013-1-Honoring-Our-VeteransWhen I was fishing against my opponent and friend Paul Bruun in the Jackson Hole One Fly our most important discussion was about a group of wounded veterans that were coming to Jackson, Wyoming to learn to fly fish.  “Who teaches them”, I asked.  All Paul knew was that he and his wife Jean were but figured they might need others.  First thing after the contest I contacted Sandra Bockman, the head of Jackson Hole’s “Honoring Our Veterans”, and signed on as an instructor.
