55c537ca-35a5-4c93-9918-ddf2aad8595dWe’re excited to announce that Winged Reel has once again partnered with Pig Farm Ink to host a Gear Drive benefiting our cause and the veterans we serve! The Gear Drive will end on January 15, 2017, and like last year, we will host a social event on February 4th 2017 after the completion of The Fly Fishing Show in Atlanta during which all of the gear collected will be handed over to PHWFF leadership. The event will be held at Tin Lizzy’s Cantina, located just steps from the Fly Fishing Show venue in Atlanta, GA.

The Gear Drive collects donations of gently used fly fishing gear to be donated to PHWFF Programs and the veterans they serve in their communities. Numerous fly shops have taken up the cause and are providing support and drop-off locations throughout the duration of the Gear Drive   You can find additional information and details on the Gear Drive at http://wingedreel.com/2nd-annual-phwff-gear-drive/
