Denver SCI Chapter - Humanitarian Outreach Program
Lincoln Hills Fly Fishing – Blackhawk, CO
Operation TBI, Freedom Hunters and Craig Hospital
It’s a cool Colorado morning in the mountains. The creek and ponds are crystal clear, and the fish are active. We have a group of Wounded Vets and Craig Hospital patients ready to try their luck at fly fishing. Most are beginners and will receive instruction from the staff of Lincoln Hills; but, first we have coffee and pastries. Then we break into groups for the basic instructions, and after that it is down to the creek and ponds.
We hookup with some big trout, some are landed and some escape. Everyone is smiling and having a great time. After a few hours we head up to the clubhouse deck and are treated to a great lunch and of course the traditional fish stories. A great day thanks to the Lincoln Hills staff.
