On September 12 the Brazos River Air Boat club - BRAB - will be taking a group of wounded veterans fishing on the Brazos below Whitney. They are providing transportation, via their airboats, up and down the river so that the wounded veterans can get out and fly fish. This is a joint effort between BRAB and North Texas Healing Waters. BRAB is furnishing the boats, the PFDs, and food and drinks.
If you're out fishing on that stretch of river that day and see an airboat, there's a 90% chance it will be taking a wounded/recovering veteran on a fishing trip of a life time. Give those men and women a wave as they go by! Not that one finger wave either - not this time...
I didn't start off as much of a fan of air boats. Over time I'd gotten used to them, then later on I noticed that I had more bites right after one went by and started to sort of kind of like them a bit. But now, with them doing this for our wounded veterans I'm a big fan.
No pun was actually intended, but it's not a bad pun.
