May 21, 2019 – Disabled veterans, local volunteers, businesses, and civic organizations will gather on Saturday June 8, 2019 at the Allen Harbor Marina in North Kingstown, Rhode Island for the second annual Narragansett Bay ‘Stars & Stripers’ fishing event.

Over a dozen disabled veterans and their families from Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing programs in New England will be hosted for a day on the Bay by professional guides and local experts; giving them the unique opportunity to pursue the areas abundant Striped Bass and Bluefish.  Thanks to many local businesses and civic organizations a very special shore lunch will provided for all at the Allen Harbor Marina at the conclusion of the day.

For a little more than a decade Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing has focused on healing those who serve.  It is through the tremendous contributions of our volunteers and supporters nationwide that last year alone PHWFF programs served over 8,300 deserving members of our armed services.

Stars & Stripers is an invitation-only community event for disabled veterans participating in Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing programs.  The fishing kicks off at 6:30 a.m. Saturday morning June 8th and concludes at 2:00 p.m. with the special shore lunch at Allen Harbor Marina.

Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to the physical and emotional rehabilitation of disabled active military service personnel and veterans through fly fishing and fly-tying education and outings. Learn more at www.projecthealingwaters.org
