Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing
"Stars and Stripers" Fishing Tournament
Date: TBD, 2015
Background and History
Project Healing Waters has recognized the benefits associated with fly fishing in the rehabilitation of our nation’s veterans suffering from physical and psychological trauma incurred while defending our Nation.
Program participants are joined by PHW volunteers at their points of rehabilitation, where they learn skills such as casting, fly tying, rod building and other techniques. These skills are then used as participants are hosted at various Fly Fishing events to apply their newly acquired skills.
In 2010, PHW teamed with "Professional" Salt Water Fly Fishing Guides for a day of fishing on the Chesapeake Bay for Striped Bass. The event has grown in size and interest, and has much of Maryland’s “Eastern Shore” community supporting the effort.
