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.
