FISHING -- Project Healing Waters has reached out through fly fishing to help several dozen Spokane-area disabled veterans since the Spokane-area chapter was founded two years ago.
Members of the Spokane Fly Fishers joined the 173 other volunteer organizations organized with PHW dedicated to the physical and emotional rehabilitation of disabled active military service personnel and veterans. The emphasis is on healing through fly fishing, fly tying education and outings.
- A national fact sheet is available here.
The group continues to seek donors of money and good-quality fly fishing equipment for use by the vets as well as volunteers interested in helping outings and clinics.
