Niagara Veteran Event

niagara veteran event

Trout Unlimited Canada and Soldier On arrange a Healing Waters event every year for veterans. This year’s event was in Niagara.

The Niagara Veteran event was planned by the local Chapter of Trout Unlimited Canada.

The Chapter hosted 10 injured soldiers for this Healing Waters event in September.

Over three days the veterans learned about fly casting and fly tying.

A highlight was a lesson from Bill Spicer. Bill is the host of the New Fly Fisher television show. The popular series airs on the Fly Fishing Network.

Volunteers throughout the three days included experts in fly casting.

The soldiers always respond very positively, and some return another year.

As seen here, Chapter member Gary Kosinsky, teaches a soldier how to tie a fly to use the next day to catch trout.
