For Immediate Release 

June 28, 2018 – Disabled veterans, local volunteers, businesses, and civic organizations will gather on Saturday July 7, 2018 at the Allen Harbor Marina in North Kingstown, Rhode Island for the inaugural Narragansett Bay ‘Stars & Stripers’ fishing event.

Over a dozen disabled veterans and their families from Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing programs in New England will be hosted for a day on the Bay by professional guides and local experts; giving them the unique opportunity to pursue the areas abundant Striped Bass and Bluefish.  Thanks to many local businesses and civic organizations a very special shore lunch will provided for all under a large tent at the Allen Harbor Marina at the conclusion of the day.

For a little more than a decade Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing has focused on healing those who serve.  It is through the tremendous contributions of our volunteers and supporters nationwide that last year alone PHWFF programs served over 8,400 deserving members of our armed services.

Stars & Stripers is an invitation-only community event for disabled veterans participating in Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing programs.  The fishing kicks off at 6:30 a.m. Saturday morning July 7th and concludes at 12:30 p.m. with the special shore lunch at Allen Harbor Marina.


Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit dedicated to the physical and emotional rehabilitation of disabled active military service personnel and veterans through fly fishing and fly-tying education and outings. Learn more at www.projecthealingwaters.org
