Dr. Chuck Moxley tied the “September Sky” fly to honor the nearly 3,000 lives lost on September 11, 2001 and those families who carry on their legacy.  Today we remember not only loss, but remarkable bravery, self-sacrifice, and all those who heeded the call in the defense of our nation.

The fly currently resides at the American Museum of Fly Fishing as the center-piece to a Campaign Ribbon Fly Plate created by the Olympic Peninsula Fly Fishers for Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing.  The project was headed up by John Gort who arranged for various members to create their interpretations of theater ribbons and medals.  This beautiful and patriotic art was produced to honor those who served and sacrificed for our country.
