Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing, Inc. is dedicated to the physical and emotional rehabilitation of disabled active military service personnel and disabled veterans through fly fishing and associated activities including education and outings. Activities are provided free of charge to all participants. What began in 2005 as a single program at Walter Reed Army Medical Center now exceeds 200 programs (including 19 programs in the Virginia and National Capital regions) led by more than 3,600 volunteers.
For over a decade PHWFF has focused on healing those who serve. It is through the tremendous contributions of supporters and volunteers nationwide that PHWFF served over 8,300 deserving members of our armed services in 2018.
