Patriot Flies and PHWFF

Articles, featured — By on June 8, 2012 9:29 am

Cory Routh (Ruthless Outdoor Adventures) Has teamed up with Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing (PHWFF) for a new venture- Patriot Flies.

Cory is the co-founded the Tidewater Kayak Anglers Association in 2002, which aims to bring together local kayak anglers. Following shortly thereafter was the creation of an annual Kayak Fishing Charity Tournament: which was started to support Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing (PHWFF) and Heroes on the Water. At every tournament vets from both organizations are hosted for an on the water outing .

Starting this year, Cory has altered the format and created a fly division for the PHWFF vets. He envisions pairing up the PHWFF participants with experienced kayak fly anglers in a separate division. Naturally, with the newly added fly division, the need for flies became important. This is where the Patriot Flies initiative was born. Cory generously wanted to present the PHWFF participants with a box of assorted red, white, and blue flies to show the appreciation for their service to our country.

After initially contacting a few friends to create these patriotic flies, the idea grew when he encountered some great tiers willing to help online, thus he started the Patriot Flies Group Page on Facebook. Currently he has assembled some very talented pro tiers, as well as guys who tie for fun. The group is ever expanding and always interested in new members. Cory says, “I just think it is a great way to say “Thanks” to out Flyfishing Warriors.”

Many thanks to Cory from Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing for all he has done to help healing those who served.
