Douglas Dear, a long-time supporter of Trout Unlimited and a TU life member has been chosen out of a pool of 600 nominees as a finalist for the L.L. Bean 2011 Outdoor Hero Award. In addition to Doug’s contributions to TU over the years, he’s also the guiding force behind Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing, an organization that helps America’s veterans recover from the injuries, both physical and emotional, they received while fighting for our country.
The TU family can help Doug win this award–and $5,000 for PHWFF–by simply casting a vote for him at the L.L. Bean website. Show Doug how much we appreciate his support of TU over the years, and how grateful we are to him for helping care for America’s heroes.
Good luck, Doug!
