Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing, Inc. (PHWFF) 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. PHWFF is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and is dependent on tax-deductible, charitable donations and the help of numerous volunteers to meet the educational, equipment, transportation, and related needs of its participants. PHWFF began in 2005 serving wounded military service members at Walter Reed Army Medical Center returning from combat in Iraq and Afghanistan. Since then, PHWFF has expanded nationwide, establishing over 200 highly successful programs in Department of Defense hospitals, Warrior Transition Units, and Veterans Affairs Medical Centers and clinics.
The PHWFF Pittsburgh Program will be holding two new Fly Tying sessions for disabled veterans. One will be held at Upper St. Clair’s McLaughlin Run Recreation Center the 4th Wednesday of the month. The other will be held at The Stephen Foster Center in Lawrenceville every other Wednesday night. We tie flies and build rods at the Aspinwall VA every Monday, and host fishing outings year round.
All veterans or active duty military with a disability are eligible to participate at no cost. For more information or to sign up, please contact Amanda Thompson at: firstname.lastname@example.org
