The 2016 annual ‘Soldier’s Day‘ will be hosted through an ongoing partnership between The America Cup, Inc Organizers and Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing.  It will offer soldiers an opportunity to get out on the water with top competitors attending the 36th FIPS Mouche World Fly Fishing Championship.

The Soldier’s Day is Thursday, September 8, 2016 at historic Camp Hale, where each soldier will be joined by a top competitor for a day of learning and fishing on rivers and lakes. Nova Guides will be our host for lodging, food, and transportation for the event at their Camp Hale property, where the 10th Mountain Division trained for WWII.
