The FX Story
The Montana Fishing Experience
Every summer we bring six groups of Wounded Warriors to Bozeman, May through October, for six days of fly fishing and therapeutic recreation which we refer to as an FX (short for fishing experience). We start by outfitting them with everything that they need to fly fish for the rest of their lives. We host them in a family setting, housing them all together. Our usual trip consists of arrival day, Fishing 101, a fishing day, a guided trip through Yellowstone Park, a fishing day, and a farewell dinner. We then say a fond farewell and send them back to the hospital or Wounded Warrior battalion.
