Veterans Service Program - Spring Creek Chapter

Veterans and SCCTU volunteers started twice a month fishing sessions at Fishermans Paradise as part of our new Veterans Service Program (VSP). They were great nights teaching, learning, laughing and catching some fish.  Veterans from all branches and eras attended.

 

The new VSP is our way to give back to local veterans by introducing them to the sport and watershed we love. The program is for all active and retired veterans who want to learn fly or spin fishing, improve their fishing skills or just spend time fishing with our talented volunteers and other veterans. No experience is necessary. We provide fly fishing equipment, flies and supplies.

 

Our local fly fishing community, including many veterans, quickly volunteered as program chairman, Jim Lanning, began planning the program. We truly appreciate the professionals and fly fishing enthusiasts volunteering their time and skills. They are the key to the program's success.

 

The group meets the second and fourth Thursday of the month, 5:30 to dusk at Fisherman's Paradise, Bellefonte, PA. Fishing will be in the no wade and fly fishing only area or the all tackle and wade areas along the creek.

 We would love more veterans and volunteers to join us.  

Please share with any veterans you know!
