We’re pleased to announce that the National Fly Rod Building Program and Competition is underway! Over 1,300 disabled veteran participants will experience building their own fly rods with Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing programs this year alone!
Now in its 12th year, the National Fly Rod Building Competition is focused on expanding the therapeutic experience for disabled veterans participating in PHWFF programs by giving them the experience of building their own fly rods to further their physical and mental rehabilitation through the sport of fly fishing. The program also has a fun competition component which gives participants the chance to win prizes for their rod building abilities.
Meet the Winners from Last Year:
The Rod Building Program and Competition wouldn’t be possible without all those volunteers who contribute their time, talents, and expertise to provide a meaningful and therapeutic experience for our Nation’s disabled veterans. We’ll be sharing much more about this fun, restorative program in the coming weeks!
