These photos come from the first Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing trip I organized. Cold weather on an April morning in 2010 couldn’t deter the troops from Ft. Carson’s Wound Warrior Transition Unit from enjoying a day on the Big Thompson River.

This Vet’s battle with this fish started innocently enough. I happened to be nearby taking photos when the spool exploded out of his reel, sending fly line everywhere. I untangled the line while another guide fed it to the Vet fighting the fish. As the fish neared the bank, a third guide netted the fish.

Four men worked together to make a memory to last a lifetime. Such is the honor of being a part of PHWFF.
