Falling Spring Trout Unlimited Wounded Warriors Project

Wounded Warriors with Stream Companions

The Wounded Warriors fly fishing project is an annual event sponsored  by FSTU. This year’s event was held on May 12.

The day started with coffee and doughnuts at Walton’s Meadow in Chambersburg. A nice fishing bag with flies was presented to each “Warrior”( donated by the Fly Shack). After that, they were each assigned a fishing companion to take them either on the Conococheague Creek or the Falling Spring. Morning and afternoon fishing was broken up by a barbecue at the Meadows.

I had the privilege of accompanying 2 Vets on the Falling Spring both of whom had tours in Afghanistan. My guys were both experienced fishermen so all I had to do was take them where the fish were located and they did the rest.

Again, this was a privilege to be involved with this program and provide whatever time and help I could to those who serve our country and fight for our freedom.
