ROCHESTER, N.Y. — The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation hosted its annual military and veterans’ fly fishing event.

Nearly a dozen veterans took advantage of the mild November weather. Those veterans came from all over the state including Rochester, Buffalo, Syracuse, and several other places. Not only did they enjoy the beautiful fishing conditions, but also the camaraderie that came with it.

“If I have a chance, I’m out on the water, because as soon as I get in the water, I’m, my problems all go away,” said Scott, a veteran and fly fisherman

This year marked the 12th year of the event.
