The Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing (PHWFF) – Quantico Chapter hosted a day trip to the South Fork Shenandoah River, Sunday, May 20. More than 21 Volunteer Guides and Warriors from Quantico, Fort Belvoir, Richmond and Silver Spring, Md., attended the all-day event. Participants fished on 300-400 yards of direct access to the Shenandoah River and several did a short float by kayak. Warriors caught bluegill, small mouth bass, brim and chubs. All equipment was provided to the Warriors and all food was donated by a generous local supporter which included homemade beef jerky, smoked barbecue ribs, homemade potato salad and ice creams. A raffle was held at the end of the day for the Warriors of items donated by Appalachian Outdoors Adventures, a local outdoor outfitting store in Luray, Va.
This event was held on the private property of a new PHWFF supporter and will now be an annual outing the weekend before Memorial Day weekend. (Photos by Krista Lutz)
