Our meeting in February will feature wild man LEE McCLELLAN from Kentucky Afield magazine  speaking on SOUTH FORK OF THE LICKING RIVER ... a spot-on local fly-fishing and floating wonderland of great places to fish from Cynthiana to Falmouth. It's been about two years since we've had Lee come up to regale us with more info from Kentucky's Blue Water Trail. I can't wait to hear his findings on my old stomping grounds (Falmouth, Morgan and Robinson Dam). Next month we move to Lother's Catering in Hebron at 1677 Petersburg Road (the old Mr. Herb's restaurant building).

Project Healing Waters - Cincinnati gets a new leader

Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing Inc., Cincinnati, will have a new leader effective January 1, 2015. D. Brent Miller will assume the role and responsibilities replacing the successful five-year term of R. Thomas Scheer, DDS. Miller has been involved in PHWFF for the past three years, and been a part of recruiting and increasing fly fishing opportunities for the wounded warriors and Veterans in the Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky area. “Tom Scheer has been a great mentor, and I hope to rely on his insight and fly fishing experience to further the PHW cause,” Miller said. “After a few years of foundation building, we are on the verge of growth, and I look forward to it. Tom has brought us to this point. I hope I can successfully fill his shoes and take us forward.”

The Cincinnati Project Healing Waters Veterans and Volunteers tie flies through the winter, and fish approximately twice a month through the rest of the year. For more information about PHW-Cincinnati, contact Miller at 513-535-8735.
