Project Healing Waters – Frederick Program (May 2020 Update)

On April 28, the club held its second installment of virtual fly tying. The veterans were treated to a brief education on bugs and their stages by Chuck Dinkel, followed by Don Fine leading the group through tying the White Cahill (as well as how to adapt the pattern using different color pallets). As always, Don methodically walked through the steps and it was great to be able to see all of the veterans tying along with him. One of the great benefits of using a web meeting (with video) is that while you can see Don work up close, you can also ask him questions as you tie, which makes all of the difference in the world.
We are all looking forward to next months fly tying webinar and then, with some luck, back to the water for some fishing.

If you have any questions or would like to participate in any of our upcoming fly tying sessions at Fort Detrick, please reach out to me at or head to our Facebook page (search for Project Healing Waters – Frederick Program).
