Project Healing Waters
« on: August 18, 2009, 10:58:31 PM »
On September 15th the Lynchburg Fly Fishing Club will begin a 4 week program in conjunction with the Murfreesboro VA Hospital. 

8 fly tying kits have been received from PHW as well as 8 TFO 9' 5 wt. 4 pc. rods all rigged with reels, backing and line.  Also the club has raised close to $100.00 for tying supplies.

Our contact at the VA is trying for a starting group of 10 out patient veterans. 

We have a member that teaches fly tying and a member that is a certified
casting instructor.

We are going into this somewhat blind and have no idea of what do or expect!  It is agreed that this is to be a pilot program leading to a long term program. 

Wish us luck!  We may be back asking for more help!

Yep just let us know.

Way to go guys.

Jack, Nabours and Friends is in for $50.00 toward your fly tying supplies. Shoot me an email with your mailing address and I'll get it sent asap.
Yesterday, I was at the bottom. I was at the bottom of a valley, in the river. Then my eyes hiked up the mountains to the snow capped peaks. I thought, "When I am at this lowest place I can be, standing in a river, everything is looking up."
