Now in its 8th year, the Project Healing Waters Fly Tying Competition is focused on expanding the therapeutic experience for PHWFF disabled veterans participants by giving them the opportunity to showcase their fly tying skills and creativity in a fun contest.
“As a Disabled Veteran i have found that tying flies is therapy for me. It calms my nerves and brings me a sense of inner peace. From choosing the color combinations and the mating of different materials to imitate what you find in nature, brings a sense of pride and satisfaction.
Chronic pain, Anxiety and Depression are real things, and for those of us who daily battle with these Demons, something as simple as tying a fly can be a big accomplishment….And for some, that’s where the healing begins.“
