With Memorial Day still fresh in our minds I wanted to make sure that everyone saw the June/July issue of Fly Fisherman Magazine featuring retired Navy SEAL Master Chief Jay Manty (cover photo).
Barry and Cathy met Jay at the IFTD (International Fly Tackle Dealer Show) held in Las Vegas last year, and Jay came to visit Fishing Creek last fall. Jay and his friend Way Yin founded Discover Courage (discover-courage.org) which is a non-profit program specifically designed for Special Ops Personnel. Ross Purnell and Monte Burke did an amazing job between the Editoral and the feature story and I would encourage you to pick up a copy of the magazine. It's an interesting read and a touching story. We are honored and grateful to have a small part in this cause and proud to be part of the fly fishing community that cares about our veterans. Our sincere Thank you to all who serve!
