Free fly fishing event for veterans planned near Stahlstown

Renatta Signorini

A free fly fishing event for veterans will be held near Stahlstown on May 11.

The event at Foggy Mountain Lodge Lake in Cook Township is for all veterans, including those with disabilities. Six hours of fishing will get underway at 9 a.m.

Adaptive equipment, fishing tackle and restroom facilities will be available and mentors will be on hand to assist fishers of all skill levels. Boy Scout Troop 465 of Greensburg will have a picnic lunch and other refreshments will be available. Fishers should bring a lawn chair.

Several veterans attended last year and fished for rainbow trout, pan fish and bass with members of the Forbes Trail Trout Unlimited chapter. As a collaboration with Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing, chapter members helped veterans get their rods set up, cast and reel in the fish.

Any veterans who want to participate can email organizer Larry Myers by April 30 at [email protected]

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
