Project Healing Waters

At Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington, D.C., veterans recovering from wounds are finding inspiration in a new program that teaches how to overcome disabilities through fly fishing. “After he got involved with the fishing group, the occupational therapy clinic made a brace for him to wear on his hand that enables him to reel with his right hand. He has also taken fly-tying classes and learned adaptive ways to strip line, he said. After enduring intense pain and overcoming his anger, [1st Lt. Eivind] Forseth finally got to fish with his dad again. ‘I can’t even explain how wonderful it’s been,’ he said.” Noelle Straub in the Jackson Hole, Wyoming Star Tribune.
