Four lucky Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing (PHWFF) disabled veteran participants enjoyed an outstanding trip to fish Montana’s legendary Madison River on May 8-12, 2018.  This special national destination trip was hosted by Dan and Nancy Delekta of the Beartooth Flyfishing lodge in Cameron, Montana.

Dan and Nancy provided the outstanding accommodations.  Chef Michael Gerhart, assisted by the Beartooth staff, provided delicious, hearty meals , and Dan and his other guides John, Ian, Marty, Brandon, David, and volunteer wade guide Bob, put the participants on numerous wild Madison browns and rainbows every day despite the challenging high water conditions.  Additionally, homeowner John Osgood graciously allowed the participants access the river through his property.  This enables them to access a remote stretch of the Madison River, providing them with truly fantastic fishing.

All of the participants raved about the outstanding hospitality and fishing, the spectacular setting of the Madison Valley, and vowed to someday return to this truly special place.  Project Healing Waters would like to thank the Delekta’s, their staff, Michael, John, and the guides for putting on an unforgettable event.
