It was the first fly fishing outing of the year! With fast-moving waters and a cloudy sky, the veterans that participated were in for a challenge. First, the veterans spent time on the deck with the guides learning about the fundamentals of fly fishing. The guides demonstrated how to cast, use the gear, and tie knots. Following the demonstration, the veterans headed into the creek with their guides. Despite the challenging conditions, the veterans had a great time and were even able to catch a few trout! Thank you to Lincoln Hills, the wonderful guides, volunteers, and everyone who made this outing possible!
