4th Annual Gray Whiskey River - 30MAY2015
The Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing (PHWFF) – Quantico Program hosted the 4th Annual Gray Whiskey River outing to the South Fork Shenandoah River, Sat., May 30. A total of 13 Volunteer Guides, Warriors and family members from the Quantico and Fort Belvoir programs attended the all-day event near Rileyville, Va.
Participants fished on 300-400 yards of direct access to the Shenandoah River. The weather was sunny and very warm with a few intermittent rain showers during the day. Everyone who fished was able to land a few bluegill, crappie, small mouth bass, and chubs. All equipment was provided to the Warriors and family members.
Dinner was prepared and donated by the Gray family and neighbors.
This annual event is held on the private property of Maston and Nanette Gray; the property is named “Whiskey River.” The “Gray Whiskey River” event has become an annual outing and is typically held the weekend before Memorial Day. However, due to the early calendar of Memorial Day, the event was postponed to the week after. (Photos by Lally Laksbergs)
