Project Healing Waters: Fall Trout in Central PA

Recently Larry Forte, Don Dunkers, and Donald Lee were able to take veterans Billy Noland and Pete Rooney to a small private stream in central Pennsylvania.

It was a fantastic day with unbelievable conditions. Both Billy and Pete crushed it throughout the day catching several trout over 20 inches.

It was a special day and a thanks to Don

Dunkers (a PVFF member) for making it possible. Hopefully, we will go back again next spring.

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 any time at or go to our Facebook page at Project Healing Waters — Frederick Chapter.
