We guide Veterans in-need to recovery
through fly fishing, mentoring, and friendship

We are Project Healing Waters

We bring a high-quality, full-spectrum fly fishing program to an ever-expanding number of Veterans in need at over 200 locations nationwide.  
Project Healing Waters programs meet regularly throughout the year with volunteers teaching the basics and advanced techniques while building long-term relationships.  It is much more than a one-time fly fishing trip.
