On the weekend of December 9th , eleven veterans from the Tennessee Valley Region were given the opportunity to visit Rose River Farms, Syria, VA. The temperatures were cold and it snowed most of the weekend, but, that didn’t stop them from spending time on the Rose River fly fishing. The water was cold, low, and clear, which made for some stealthy measures to luck up on a strong fighting rainbow or brown. Everyone enjoyed a great time of fellowship, camaraderie, and healing on the river along with tying flies and swapping stories back at the cabins.
