For a little more than a decade Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing (PHWFF) has focused on healing those who serve.  It is through the tremendous contributions of our volunteers and supporters nationwide that last year we served over 7400 deserving members of our armed services.

Current participants in the Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing Program, and alumni, will also be on hand throughout the weekend to discuss the challenges facing today’s service members, both physical and emotional, and the impact PHWFF has had on their recovery and transition.

The tournament competition kicks off at 7:00 a.m. Sunday morning May 1st and features PHWFF participants from across the nation.  Military/veteran participants will be partnered with a professional fly fishing guide from among the most notable names in the sport.
