The Faricy Boys: Bronze Sponsor of the Film Tour

01/27/18 at 06:47 PM by Vince Puzick

 

Jon Easdon, Director of Services at Angler’s Covey, spoke with the sponsors of the Fly Fishing Film Tour (F3T), an event that raises funds for the Colorado Springs Chapter of Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing.  Ben Faricy, one of "the Faricy Boys," is the President of Faricy Motors, a family-owned Colorado dealership for over 75 years.

 

Jon Easdon: What does the F3T mean to you and your company? 

Ben Faricy: The majority of our customers use their vehicles to take advantage of the Colorado lifestyle, and the F3T event is a perfect example of getting the local community excited about a sport that has outstanding opportunities to take advantage of right in our backyard.

 

JE: Why did you want to be a sponsor for our F3T? 

Ben Faricy: As a local, family-owned business, we love to support community events that combine doing good for others with a fun, unique venue that brings people together. 

 

JE: What impact has Projected Healing Waters had on you? 

Ben Faricy: One of our staff members, Doreen Bronner, introduced me to Project Healing Waters six months ago, and I thought it was a really interesting concept and a wonderful way to give back to those who have served.  Anyone can see what a calming influence fly fishing can have on their busy life, and it only makes sense that it can play a role in the lives of the military men and women as they return to everyday life after serving our country.
 

JE: How has flyfishing in general influenced you or your company? 

Ben Faricy: My two young sons became interested in fly fishing this summer, and it really took off when my wife convinced our boys to sell their video games to buy fly fishing gear of their own!  While I’ve enjoyed fly fishing periodically over the last 20 years, our sons’ excitement has led our family into a newfound love for the sport as we learn together.  We’ll see where it takes us - my boys hope Alaska or Newfoundland (someday…).
