Celebrate Veterans Day with Veteran Chad Brown and Catch & Release @ Lucky Labrador Brewpub
SE 9th & Hawthorne (parking lot on Madison)
Veteran's Day, November 11th at 6:30pm
Soul River Facebook page
Fly Fishers Club of Oregon salutes our service men and women who've given their time – and much more – to serve our country. Tonight, we’ll hear from Chad Brown, a U.S. Navy Veteran who is a survivor of Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome by spending time on the river and learning to fly fish. Today, Chad operates Soul River Runs Deep, a boutique that features outdoor urban lifestyle products, including fly fishing equipment. Soul River gives 15% of all sales to help connect inner city youth and veterans fighting PTSD with opportunities in the outdoors at zero cost, using fly fishing and outdoors expeditions as means to finding healing in nature.
We’re also happy to have Catch & Release on hand, Portland’s premier (and likely only) fly fishing-inspired band. Led by author Chris Santella (and featuring Keith Carlson, Doug Mateer and Sloan Morris), Catch & Release will play an acoustic set of toe-tapping, original fly-fishing tunes.
Lucky Labrador, one of Portland’s oldest brew pubs, provides a fun, friendly atmosphere with great comfort food and a selection of on-premises-brewed beers. Convenient to downtown at SE 9th & Hawthorne (parking lot on Madison).
