In the dead days of the off season for the Colorado Avalanche, what better way to spend your time than fly fishing and supporting a good cause.
From the Project Healing Waters website:
What: competitive fly fishing ONLY for trout (rainbow, brown, cutthrout, cutbow and brook) averaging 16″-22″ and up to 30″ on 3 miles of private water on the north branch of the South Platte River
Why: to support the charitable organization, Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing, which benefits recovering wounded US military veterans across North America.
When: July 22, 2017
Where: Boxwood Gulch Ranch, Shawnee CO (50 miles SW of downtown Denver)
Along with Peter McNab, former Colorado Avalanche player Shjon Podein will be participating.
If you’re looking for something to do on a Saturday afternoon in July, you could do a lot worse than heading down to check out an event that tries to raise money for a worthy cause. If you’re unable to make it down, you are able to donate online here.
