Project Healing Waters
Volunteers hold clinics for wounded/injured military personnel and disabled veterans ranging from beginners to those with prior fly fishing and tying experiences. Many learn to adapt their fishing skills to their new abilities and disabilities.
For many participants, particularly disabled veterans, the socialization and camaraderie of the classes are just as important as the fishing outings. And, fly fishing provides many veterans with a new, lifelong recreational activity.
Other therapeutic benefits include improved motor skills and eye-hand coordination, and confidence building.
Fly fishing is a lifetime sport with often-immeasurable rewards. The men and women who participate in Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing activities take away more than just a fishing experience.
We help heal disabled vets through fly fishing, rod building and fly tying.
Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing, is dedicated to the physical and emotional rehabilitation of disabled active military service personnel and disabled veterans through fly fishing and associated activities including education, outings, fly tying, rod building, fly casting and knot tying.
