March 4 & 5 are the dates for the Marabou Madness weekend where veterans from South Carolina and North Carolina participant in this vaunted PHWFF program. The entire weekend will be filled with fly-tying and fly-fishing instruction and fellowship with fellow veterans and the volunteers of PHWFF. Fly Fishing the World host will be on hand to provide tips and information for catching carp, redfish, and Mako Sharks on the fly.
Participants will be entered into a drawing and one lucky person will receive a TFO NXT Fly-Fishing combo. Additionally there will be a fly-tying contest with a Nor-vise Tying System being first prize. Don't forget all the great food that will be provided by local sponsors, Jersey Mike's and Mission BBQ.
To finish Saturday's event, participants and volunteers will be honored for their contributions to the program this past year. Finally, we'll draw for the Jackson Kayak and Yeti coolers from our raffle.
