Marabou Madness V Fly Tying Event is being conducted by the Fayetteville, North Carolina program of Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing, Inc  on March 3 – 4, 2018 at the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission’s Pechmann Fishing Education Center in Fayetteville, North Carolina.  For the past 4 years, the Marabou Madness event has provided the veteran participants of Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing (PHWFF) with an opportunity to come together and share information, stories, and fellowship with other fly anglers and veterans while taking part in one of their favorite past times.  This year, the group is pleased to welcome Curtis Fleming and the crew of the Fly Chronicles to film a show that will highlight PHWFF activities in the Fayetteville, NC area that provide healing benefit to our disabled veterans and the injured service members assigned to Fort Bragg.

During their visit, they will take some time to fish the Cape Fear River for American shad and Striped bass with disabled veteran participants of PHWFF and guide Capt. Jon Huff of Circle H Charters. Additionally, the group will learn about management and conservation efforts of shad and Striped bass conducted by the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission. Host Curtis Fleming will also visit Fort Bragg’s Warrior Transition Battalion to learn about the unit’s mission and the challenges facing soldiers during their recovery.

Fly Rod Chronicles is an award-winning, international fly fishing show. FRC uses fly fishing as a vehicle to take the viewer to some amazing places and tell stories about people, local culture (food, music, etc.) and highlight some of the best places in the country for travelers to visit and catch some amazing fish along the way.

Marabou Madness V attendees can also look forward to a special presentation from renown fly tier Charlie Craven, numerous fly-tying demonstrations, tying contests, fly-casting games, an exciting fishing derby hosted in the Pechmann Fishing Education Center ponds, and an awards ceremony to recognize veteran participants, volunteers, and supporters that make the PHWFF program possible in North Carolina.
