Casting a Lifeline: Everyday HeroesFirst Sergeant Ira Strouse (Ret.) and Project Healing Waters take disabled veterans fly-fishing as a therapeutic escape from the battle scars of war. He began his experience as a participant, but found the program so transformative that once his therapy was through, he knew he had to do more. From the surfer who gives special children a reason to smile, to the Ford dealer who leaves his job to fight a fire, there are people around us who go further every day. Ford salutes all owners, dealers and employees who embody the meaning of Go Further.
While I am Here: The Legacy Project - Healing WatersAfter 30 years in the Navy and 10 years in private industry, Ed Nicholson was diagnosed with cancer. He was in Walter Reed National Military Medical Center recovering when injured vets began coming back from Iraq. Nicholson realized there was something he could do to help them cope with their mental and physical issues. Armed with a fly fishing rod, Ed began to teach people to cast on the front lawn of the hospital and Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing was born. The project now takes veterans out onto the water to fly fish, but most importantly build relationships that will last for a lifetime. The Project has grown to 178 programs in 50 States.
Project Healing Waters ESPNProject Healing Waters Fly Fishing, Inc. is dedicated to the physical and emotional rehabilitation of disabled active duty military personnel and veterans through fly fishing and fly tying education and outings.
Captain Eivind Forseth US Army (ret)"Project Healing Waters, for me, it saved my life." - Captain Eivind Forseth, U.S. Army (ret) After recovering at Walter Reed Army Medical Center from injuries sustained in combat, Eivind served as a project coordinator for Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing, Inc. from its inception in 2005 to his retirement from the U.S. Army in March of 2008. He attributes PHWFF with helping him overcome his disability by learning to fly fish and tie flies adaptively. As he and his family will attest, PHWFF has been instrumental to his emotional and physical recovery.
