    Hello all,

    It is that time again to start getting ready for the 2nd Annual Project Healing Waters 2 Fly on the Yakima River. There will be more emails to follow as we get further into the planning but here are details we know;

    Who: Northwest Project Healing Waters veterans and volunteers.

    What: 2 Fly Fishing Contest ((same venue as last year. 1 vet, 1 volunteer per drift boat (=’s a team) with two flies each only 2 patterns. The drift boat rower is also the rower/judge. Each team will have a section of the river to fish in a set timeframe. More to follow on the venue and rules))

    When: Saturday 20 August 2011.

    Where: Yakima River Washington is the river to be fished. We will be staying at the Ellensburg KOA group tent area on Friday and Saturday night (19-20 August). No change from Last year and yes Jerry D. will be the camp chef for the event. (If you don’t fish you will be a fool not to eat his chow)

    Why: Because we can and it’s a hell of a lot of fun.


    *****Last note, if you would like to donate prizes for our participants (either as an award or a raffle prize) contact me and I will square you away. :) Thank you all for your help.....Jerry your friendly (sometimes) Moderator. ;)

    That is so awesome to hear that I can mark the date on the calendar. Last year was awesome and this year can only be better. Thanks for the early post so we can get our shit squared away for this amazing event.

    Agreed with Ryan and got things almost ready now. This has got to be one of the best things a person can do to honor their contry and the men who served when needed, and continue to serve now.And on top of that we get to fish and eat and meet the old and new friends that will be there. Happy Fishing!!

    I'm in for set up, cooking , clean up, ferrying etc. I am also working on an auction item. If you are short on volunteers I can also bring the event to my American legion or VFW post, most of those guys are not fishy but always willing to help fellow veterans.

    Jerry, told you yesterday and told Chuck too...I am IN for anything needed of me. My family will be on vacation without me. I know where I'll be that whole weekend! Jesse and Jason for a repeat? I'll find some items that deserve a good home too. Let me know the deal for contributing some lightly used stuff.

    Jeff we may need boats. But we can put you on a list for volunteers. Can find something for you.

    Ed, all donations can be filtered through me or Chuck. I need to start hitting up the shops for donations too.

    As of right now there's not much more info. It's too early to assign jobs or boats. We will definitely need quite a few boats that can seat one fore, one aft. We will definitely need help running shuttles, serving food, etc etc etc.

    I can provide 2 drift boats/oarsmen. We would launch at the base of the diversion dam (on my property) and float to either Mcmanamy Rd. ( 2 mi.), or the KOA ( 5 mi.). For such a worthy cause, I'd be happy to make the diversion dam to Mcmanamy Rd. section of the river available, which is off-limits to boating access because boats must pull-out above the diversion Dam.

    I can also provide comfortable accomodations for several participants and still participate in the activities at the KOA.

    Thank you Bob, that's VERY generous. May have to contact you about a few things. I'll have to talk to Chuck about our flots, we try to keep them in 5-10 mile floats depending on water levels (last years high levels made the 5 mile float too short).

    Last year's floats were short, so we improvised successfully. Last years floats were also in the middle of the hot day. I'd be interested in seeing us draw two beats. Fish one early, awesome break for lunch and then fish another late. More complicated for the shuttle process, but I bet others would be game in supporting such an adventure.
