River Scene

Adipose Boatworks, Wolf Creek Angler and Headhunters Flyshop will be hosting a Drift Boat 101 Clinic and fundraiser for Mending Waters Montana on Saturday, April 13. The morning will start at 10 a.m. at Headhunters Flyshop in Craig. There will be instruction on drift boat transport, launching/loading the drift boat, rowing, anchoring, how to fish from the boat and general river etiquette. There will be off and on-the-water instruction during the clinic with the opportunity to row a drift boat. The clinic will end at 6 p.m.

A barbecue lunch will be provided by Headhunters. While there is no charge for the clinic or lunch, it is strongly encouraged that participants donate to Mending Waters Montana (formerly MT Project Healing Waters). Raffle tickets will be sold at the event for a chance to win rod and reel combos, Yeti products, free drift boat rentals and other fishing related goodies.

Mending Waters Montana is a nonprofit, volunteer group here in Helena that is dedicated to the physical and emotional rehabilitation of active military personnel and veterans through fly fishing. This includes fly tying classes and fly fishing trips.
