Go backstage, behind the wheel, and to class with Gary... he might be fishing, cooking, reading, playing with the cat, or hiking. Gary invites you to join him on the road and behind the scenes.

TO BE HELD JULY 1-7, 2018

Mountain Spirit Ranch is located in one of the premier fly-fishing areas in the United States. For several years Gary has opened its doors to our Veterans suffering from PTSD and disabilities where he has taught them the art of fly-fishing and making flies, along with the healing properties of the outdoors and the beautiful Navajo River.

You can arrive on either Sunday, July 1st, or Monday, July 2nd. The workshop will begin on Tuesday, July 3rd, and departure will be on Saturday, July 7th. Celebrate the 4th of July at the Ranch and enjoy the majestic mountains and the beautiful lodge.

Each participant has the option to bring a guest for an additional charge. Please note that each room has only one bed.
