World Fishing Day is Saturday, June 23, and thanks to the good folks at FishingTV, Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing will be a big part of this special 24-hour live webcast!
PHWFF will be on hand for one of these live webcasts, starting at 3 p.m. MT in Denver, where host Corinne Doctor of Rep Your Water will speak with our Rocky Mountain South Regional Coordinator Crystal Woolen. The two will discuss the PHWFF Program, Mission, history and the positive impact our programs have on thousands of disabled veterans each year.
