Fly fishing in Iraq

From Aamer Madhani, Chicago Tribune, May 17, 2006: GIs angle for quiet time at Baghdad School of Fly Fishing. The article covers various ways folks at Camp Victory in Iraq have to unwind, but focuses on a fly fishing course set up by Navy Lt. Joel Stewart, an avid angler who was serving there. Enthusiasts in the United States, upon hearing about the classes, sent flies, rods, reels, and other equipment to give the project a boost. Gotta love it.
