This song was written by William (Charlie) Trawick, a veteran alumnus of Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing (Tennessee Valley) and Operation Song. Charlie wanted his song to be about his favorite R+R in-and-out of the service: fishing.
The vocal was provided by Matt Dame, and it was co-written by Bob Regan and Don Goodman. Operation Song is a Tennessee based not-for-profit program that pairs veterans, active duty military, and their families with professional songwriters to help them tell their stories. 400 + songs written with veterans of WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Iraq and Afghanistan.
