Trout anglers help wounded veterans

NORRIS -- How Trout Unlimited and Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing provide support for wounded military veterans will be the topic Thursday, March 8, of two speakers at a free, public 7 p.m. meeting of the Clinch River Chapter, Trout Unlimited (TU).

The speakers are Jonathan Huckaba of Elizabethton, program lead for Project Healing Waters in Johnson City and a member of the Cherokee Chapter TU, and Alan Folger, head of the national TU Veterans Service Program.

The Clinch River Chapter is currently developing a program that will use members' expertise in fishing and conservation as a support for area military vets. Steve Burman and John Caldwell have stepped up to head the project, which will likely be connected with Project Healing Waters.

The Clinch River Chapter's mission is to conserve and protect the Clinch River tailwater trout fishery and its watershed, through conservation projects and through education of children and adults in aquatic natural resources. Meetings are held the second Thursday of the month in the parish hall at St. Francis Episcopal Church, 158 W. Norris Road, Norris, except when outdoor activities are scheduled.
