TU holds fly tying event for two great causes
On Saturday, March 16, 2013, NJ State Council of Trout Unlimited sponsored March Fly Tying Madness at The Cranford Community Center. Hosted by our Rahway River TU chapter that meets in Cranford, the afternoon included thirty two TU members from around the state who tied hundreds of flies to be donated to Project Healing Waters and Casting For Recovery. Door prizes were awarded to participants and a complimentary lunch was served. Outreach to our soldiers that have proudly served our nation and for women’s breast cancer recovery patients using fly fishing to overcome physical and emotional scars left by war or cancer are important focuses for Trout Unlimited. These two activities fall into our Veterans Services and Women’s Initiative, respectively. Both programs which are described in full on this site. Many thanks to our generous hosts, Rahway River TU, for a great day of fly tying for two excellent causes and for the door prizes and the lunch!
Thanks for the great coordination and hosting, Rahway River TU!
And a big thanks to all of our sponsors!
Everyone was busy all day at their vises and plenty of flies were made
