Quebec Fly Tying Marathon

The Quebec program of the Project Healing Waters Canada project is a very active group. The volunteers are always looking for new ways to help veterans. Some form of outing or get-together is always being planned.

One new idea to help veterans with fly fishing needs came to fruition recently.

On Saturday March 25th this year, Quebec members held their first ever fly tying marathon which they called “Tie a fly for a Veteran”. Over twenty regular tyers came for this first event as well some of the group’s regular participants.

As you can see from the photos taken on the day, the marathon was a success. Furthermore, a record number of flies were created and proudly displayed on the group’s supporter board.
