Fly Fishing with Anglers of Honor
Our Anglers of Honor program is hosting veterans from Operation TBI Freedom as well as active duty soldiers from Ft. Carson SRU today at Lincoln Hills Fly Fishing Club. Everyone is ready to learn about Fly Fishing and try their luck in South Boulder Creek and the adjacent ponds. The weather is perfect and the water is clear. After a morning of basic instruction and some great fishing with the AOH guides everyone has netted a few beautiful trout! We head to the deck of the eco-center for special lunch treat from the Denver branch of the All American Beef Battalion—a non-profit based out of Kansas. They have brought a pull-behind smoker and will be serving ribeye steak, hot dogs, corn mash potatoes and cookies for dessert. The lunch is an amazing companion to the blue sky, sunshine and fish stories. All of the vets and soldiers are given their own Anglers of Honor fly rod with the hope that they will continue to learn, enjoy the healing waters and fish with their new fly rods. Special thanks to the All American Beef Battalion, the volunteers and guides for helping make this a spectacular day!
