Project Healing Waters 2-Fly Event Set For May 3

The 3rd Annual Project Healing Waters 2-Fly event has been set for May 3, 2009, at Douglas Dear’s Rose River Farm in Madison County, Virginia. (The televised coverage of last year’s event at Rose River Farm just won the “Best Episode” award at this year’s SHOT show.) You can download the entry form, along with sponsorship info, here.
Project Healing Waters (, in case you haven’t heard of them, teaches wounded soldiers to fly fish as official rehab therapy via the U.S. military and the Veteran’s Administration. It was started by Capt. Ed Nicholson to help wounded Iraq veterans recover from physical and emotional trauma and has gathered support from numerous national organizations and individuals for the good work it does.
