We are pleased to announce that the Fayetteville, North Carolina program of Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing, Inc. will conduct Marabou Madness V Fly Tying Event on March 3 – 4, 2018 at the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission’s Pechmann Fishing Education Center in Fayetteville, North Carolina.

For the past 4 years, the Marabou Madness event has provided the veteran participants of Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing (PHWFF) with an opportunity to come together and share information, stories, and fellowship with other fly anglers and veterans while taking part in one of their favorite past times.  On Saturday, March 3, 2018 nearly 100 veteran participants from across the south will gather for Marabou Madness V.

Each year, fly-fishing and fly-tying experts are invited to Marabou Madness to share their knowledge and experience with participants and to encourage them to further pursue and participate in the sport.  This year we are pleased to welcome world-renown fly-tier Charlie Craven to Marabou Madness.  Charlie will provide attendees with an instructional session and impart his knowledge in the field of fly tying.

Additionally, attendees can look forward to numerous fly-tying demonstrations, tying contests, fly-casting games, an exciting fishing derby hosted in the Pechmann Fishing Education Center ponds, and an awards ceremony to recognize veteran participants, volunteers, and supporters that make the PHWFF program possible in North Carolina.

Sponsors of the event include Otis Technology, North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission, Jersey Mike’s, Mission BBQ, and Methodist University.  To learn more about Marabou Madness V, please contact Tom Carpenter at tom.carpenter@projecthealingwaters.org or visit the Marabou Madness V event page on Facebook at : https://www.facebook.com/events/201700637008920/
