Custom Fly Rods to benefit PHWFF
Angler, Vietnam Veteran and owner of FlyFishingCrazy.com, Larry Snyder, along with Army veteran Terry Johnson of T. L. Johnson Rod Company, in cooperation with Project Healing Waters, presents a custom U.S. built fly rod with 20% plus $20 going to PHWFF. Larry volunteers for PHWFF in Denver and sometimes works with the Colorado Springs and Ft. Carson. He quickly realized that he could only afford to donate so much of his time and money to the organization, so he contacted Terry Johnson, one of his rod vendors, to see about building a custom rod that can be ordered with Branch of Service colors on a matte finish blank and 20% of sales going to PHWFF. The base rod will have Olive wraps with 3 NCP Olive spiral accent wraps, premium anodized pewter reel seat with walnut insert. Check out Larry’s website to see the Branch of Service colors available. He also has two upgrades available: nickel silver hardware and a gorgeous blued nickel silver hardware. Terry then stepped up and offered Larry a $20 build discount which is why it is now 20% plus $20. Because these are custom builds, there will be a 4-8 week build time, but well worth the wait. Larry also offers free shipping in the continental U.S.

A Fly Rod in my Sea Bag : Fishing Adventures in Baghdad during Operation Iraqi Freedom
On May 1st, 2005, a Montana fly angler-turned-sailor arrived in the desert nation of Iraq as part of a coalition of forces working to bring peace to a war-torn countryside. A naval officer assigned to the Multi-National Corps Iraq, Joel Stewart found himself based in Camp Victory on the grounds of Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein's former Al Faw Palace. With numerous man-made lakes stocked by the former dictator with a variety of sport fish, in the down hours from a stressful job in a war zone, Commander Stewart did what any good fisherman would do -- he went fishing. With the foresight to have packed a fly rod in his sea bag, in a desert oasis built by a brutal dictator, Stewart began an odyssey unparalleled in the history of fishing. As he discovered the strange fish inhabiting the lakes in the Camp Victory compound, he began to share his catches with friends via the internet. Others, fascinated by Commander Stewart's catches, began to join him, and soon he was teaching numerous others how to fly fish. Thus, the Baghdad School of Fly Fishing was born, an angling club that remained in existence for the remainder of the time American troops were in Iraq. 25% OF ROYALTIES WILL BE DONATED TO PROJECT HEALING WATERS FLY FISHING
