[ARCHIVED] Serenity, Connection and Free Fly Fishing

On the waterways of our great nation, Veterans hardened from service and sacrifice, are feeling peace, joy and an emotional connection—often for the first time in a long time.

Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing, Inc. (PHWFF) began in 2005 serving wounded military service members at Walter Reed Army Medical Center returning from combat in Iraq and Afghanistan. Since then, PHWFF has expanded nationwide, establishing its highly successful program in Department of Defense hospitals, Warrior Transition Units, and Veterans Affairs Medical Centers and clinics. 

Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing (PHWFF) provides free fly fishing classes and trips to both Veterans who have never fly fished before, and seasoned Veteran anglers.
