I was glancing through the latest issue of Fly Fisherman today and read a short article about a Navy lieutenant currently stationed in Baghdad who started up a flyfishing class several months ago. He has been teaching classes on casting, flytying, etc., and he and his students have been catching carp and some other type of fish native to Iraq. There was a web site mentioned in the article, but I left my magazine at the office. They have been receiving some help in the way of materials and books from some of the flyfishing companies. Interesting article, and sounds like a good way for some people in a stressful situation to get in some good rest and relaxation.
