Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing, Inc. was established in 2005 at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C. Today, there are more than 200 programs across the U.S. and abroad. The organization is dedicated to the physical and emotional rehabilitation of disabled veterans and disabled active duty service personnel through fly fishing and other associated activities including education and outings. PHWFF is a 501(c)3 tax exempt organization.
What does PHWFF do? We co-ordinate with organizations to work with disabled veterans or active duty individuals receiving treatment for a disabling condition.
How does PHWFF do it? Volunteers from local fly fishing clubs teach the classes at Laurel Creek Campground & Outpost. We organize one-day and multi-day fishing trips in the highlands of Virginia. All equipment is provided to participants at no cost.
