TKAA KAyak Fish for Charity: Project Healing Waters Outing

Every Year kayak anglers from around the country flock to Virginia Beach to fish in the TKAA's Kayak Fish for Charity Tournament. The tournament benefits Heroes on the Water (www.heroesonthewater.org) and Project Healing Waters (www.projecthealingwaters.com). This year we sponsored the PHW outing and had five Warriors participate. I also rounded up several "Patriot Flies" from over a dozen talented tyers to present to the participants. Big Props to Jeff Jones, Jay Kocan, Chuck Wrenn, Keith Corodimas, Ralf Schloss, James aka "Lonestar", Mike Scully, David Parks, Benjamin Cook, Capt. Chris Newsome, Dan Suminski, R Kevin Kelly, Capt. Dean Thomas,  and Chris Funk for tying some phenomenal flies for us.

 

The weather was less than perfect but the guys had a great time and even managed a few fish, it seems that the flies may have outperformed the bait fisherman that day.

 

Long has it been believed that Bananas were bad luck and these guys decided to play a joke on one of their fellow Warriors. So they planted bananas on his kayak. He was not aware of the bad luck and ate his banana.

Just moments after eating the banana he hooked up.

Bananas and the color yellow good luck? YEEEEEPPPP!

I never get tire of hosting these guys and always has sore ribs from laughing so hard. Again I am humbled and proud to be able to give a great time to these deserving Heroes!
