Erik Larsen, Program Lead for the San Marcos, TX Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing program, writes in about a fly rod building class that brought a few participants from the San Marcos and San Antonio, TX programs together for a fun and educational weekend.

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 and the tremendous support of the Bob Woodruff Foundation and an NFL-BWF partnership to provide a “Healthy Lifestyles and Creating Community.”


Rod building is one of the core program activities of PHWFF.  This past weekend, participants from the San Antonio and San Marcos PHWFF programs joined together to build fly rods. Terry Adams, a San Antonio program veteran participant, led the five veteran participants throughout the class with the assistance of volunteers from both programs. The participants were walked through every step of the procedure. They were even taught tricks to make their build easier.  You could see the relief and joy on the faces when their rods made it to the rod dryers to dry.
