Warriors and Quiet Waters is a Bozeman-based non-profit that brings traumatically injured veterans like Trumble on fly-fishing trips to help them heal and move forward. Since its inception in 2007, WQW has hosted hundreds of veterans on weeklong fishing excursions, knows as FXs. During the FX, veterans are paired with a guide and companion to help them learn the art of fly-fishing. Several participants and WQW volunteers spent the day April 16 fishing the Boulder River.
