Description

Sky Jones shares how he has paired his passion for fly fishing with his dedication to those who have served. Volunteering with Warriors and Quiet Waters Foundation, Jones is helping veterans with post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) experience healing change through fly fishing. This moving talk will illustrate how powerful and therapeutic engaging your senses can be. Sky Jones is a natural resources and civil litigation attorney in Bozeman, Montana. When he is not in his office you can find him fly fishing on, or rowing his boat down, one of the many blue-ribbon trout fisheries in southwest Montana. Sky grew up on the plains of eastern New Mexico and west Texas before attending Baylor University on a track scholarship. After graduation, Sky chose Missoula and the University of Montana School of Law for many reasons, one of which was its proximity to good fishing, skiing, hunting, and hiking. Sky now runs the small law firm of Jones Law, P.C., focusing on civil litigation and oil and gas title examination. When not practicing law or fishing, Sky is volunteering as the President of the Fraternal Order of Eagles, Bozeman Aerie #326, and assisting with its various charities. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
