Help Make “Mending the Line” a Reality

There is less than 40 hours left no time left to help make 90-year-old Frank Moore’s dream a reality. But that’s okay, because…
…UPDATE: Great success! Over $50,000 was raised to officially make Frank’s dream come true. To learn more about the project visit
Frank is a World War II veteran who landed on Utah Beach in June of 1944 during the D-Day invasion of Normandy. He is also a legendary fly-fisherman who has defined his reputation on the banks of the North Umpqua River in southwestern Oregon. It is Frank’s dream to return to France and fish the rivers he first glimpsed as a 21-year-old soldier, and local filmmakers Uncage The Soul are working to make that dream a reality.
If we as a community are able to rally in support of “Mending The Line” and reach the fundraising goal of $50,000, Frank, his wife of 70-years Jeanne, their son Frankie, and a small film crew will travel to France to document Frank’s 69th anniversary of first setting foot on the French beaches of Normandy.
Learn more about this extraordinary project, which will allow Frank to re-visit his past to define his future, and be sure to preview the possibilities below.
