It is only through the generosity of so many kind friends in the Panama City area that project healing waters has been able to do this for the third year in a row”  -Ellen Killough, CEO, PHWFF

Ten (10) participants from VA and military hospitals in Florida, Tennessee, and Mississippi will be arriving in Panama City, FL on March 12th and gathering at the Laketown Wharf at 5pm for expert casting instruction and a shrimp and crawfish boil to prepare themselves for the following days on the water.  Departing the next day from Sun Harbor at 730am, the wounded veterans will embark upon a world-class fishing experience with local volunteers and 3 boats from Shallow Water Expeditions, sponsored by Randy Horton of Old Florida Outfitters.  The 10 participants will prowl the flats each day, enjoying both the restorative powers of the Florida waters and the game fish present within.   Following each day, veterans and volunteers will share stories of time-in-service and time on-the-water while enjoying the great hospitality of the area thanks to Scampy’s Seafood & Steaks and J. Micheal’s.   Read about the 2013 Panama City trip by clicking here

“This trip did a lot of good for me. I got to experience several feelings that had been dormant for a long time. All of us warriors suffer in our own ways from our experiences from combat but events like this honestly help in several ways to improve our lives” – Eugene Dufrene P SFC (ret) on the 2013 Panama City Trip

PHWFF is a 501(c)(3) organization and is dedicated to the physical and emotional rehabilitation of injured and disabled active military service personnel and disabled veterans through fly fishing and associated activities including education and outings.  Services are provided through over 2,000 volunteers at ongoing projects at 167 military hospitals and VA facilities nationwide.
