We are conservationists, we are fisher persons,
We are AMERICANS!!!
What if your next fishin' buddy left part of herself or himself in Iraq... Afghanistan...Viet Nam... Korea.
You know why you joined TU! You know when to attend a meeting, to support a fundraiser, to hold an office, to sign up for a project... and of course the joy of fishing. In case none of these things strike a nerve... consider "Project Healing Waters". At 100+ Veteran's Hospitals around the country (half of them supported by a TU chapter)... small groups of veterans from every era enjoy the company, conversation, skills, time and attention of a fisherperson like you.
Such encounters are not by chance. Doctors and therapists are arranging (prescribing) attendance and participation. Volunteers like us arrange sessions of "bug talk", casting, tying, etc... in the conference rooms or hallways during wintertime. Anticipation for fishing outings in the spring and summer is GREAT!
SO; PLEASE consider this!
* Add fishin' with a vet to your already busy schedule!
* Make your TU contribution of time and energy to a vet!
* Locate that old single-
* Share some of your fur and feather collection in a session with a vet!
* Figure out how to cast with one arm... perhaps sitting!
* Imagine a woolly bugger made with one vet's hand and one of yours!
TCTU is sponsoring organization for Project Healing Waters at the Minneapolis Veterans Medical Facility. We will collaborate with other TU chapters, fishing clubs, tying clubs, shops and individuals to bring the flyfishing experience to those who SERVED
