Thanks to everyone who supported our Second Annual Benefit for Project Healing Waters. During the week of Veterans Day we launched 6 auctions and raised almost $750! This money goes directly to the physical and emotional rehabilitation of disabled active military service personnel and disabled veterans through fly fishing.
The event was made possible thanks to the contributions of our corporate sponsors. Please help me thank them by clicking on their logo below. Also, a special shout out to Nick Szabo who tied two fly boxes for Project Healing Water events!
We hold this event annually, but support is appreciated year round. Please keep Project Healing Waters in mind next time you’re looking to make a charitable donation.
THANK YOU - Kyle
From Simms: With only a small window of time to pursue one of the world's most elusive fish species, the taimen, anglers have no choice but to fish through the unpredictable weather conditions of Mongolia. Despite its remoteness, a growing fly fishing culture has arisen to protect this sacred fish and preserve the rivers in which it swims. http://www.simmsfishing.com
