Walleyes Chicago: ``Fishing with a Vet''

| 2 Comments | No TrackBacks

Walleyes Chicago is hosting a ``Fishing with a Vet'' day on Sept. 18 on the Illinois River at Spring Valley.

Here are the details from Walleyes Chicago president Barry O'Flynn:

We are hosting a "Fishing with a Vet" day. This event is going to be on Saturday Sept 18th in Spring Valley, IL at the Spring Valley boat club. We will be launching at 8:00 am and returning at 2:00 pm. We will be having a barbque afterwards. This is an opportunity for vets to come out and enjoy a day of fishing on the Illinois river with our club members. We will supply all boats, tackle, bait and a barbque afterwards. Vets only need to show up with fishing license and there personal gear. Since this is our first year doing this we are limiting the # of spaces to 30.
If you know anyone interested or can help us get the word out please let me know. I can be reached via email

This is a small way of saying thank you to all Vets who have sacrificed so much in order for us to enjoy the freedom that we sometimes take for granted
