Bill Frangos was selected as the Project Healing Waters Southwest Region’s Volunteer of the Year from among over 300 volunteers. Bill leads the fly tying portion of the New Mexico Trout sponsored PHW program at the Albuquerque Veterans Administration Medical Center. This part of the year fly fishing long program meets weekly five months of the year and Bill has not missed a fly tying session since the program started over 8 years ago. Bill also supports the program’s casting and educational meetings the rest of the year. He is a veteran himself and has a major positive impact on those veterans that enter and stay with the PHW fly fishing program and he is more than deserving of this award.
