Project Healing Waters – Class #1

Wednesday March 21, 2012 was our first fly tying class at the Clarksburg VA.   The class marks the first time the Clarksburg VA’s PHW group has come together to “Heal those who serve” through fly fishing.   We started the class off with the ever popular Black Woolly Bugger and a basic instruction on the tools and material used in tying one.   With flies like these and the weather we have been having there will be some fish caught very soon!

What is Project Healing Waters?

The Mountaineer Chapter will be discussing our possible involvement with Project Healing Waters. PHW is a group that has partnered with various fishing clubs and organizations to promote the therapeutic value that fly fishing can bring to the traumas of war.  Our local Veterans Hospital in Clarksburg has contacted Project Healing Waters and asked for a program here.  The Veterans Service Partnership Coordinator for Trout Unlimited contacted us in the hopes that our chapter might be interested in helping to start a program here in Clarksburg.   For those who are not familiar with PHW here are a couple videos that better describe the program and what it does.   If you think you would be interested in helping out with a group the Mountaineer Chapter will be looking to put together come to our Chapter meeting 7pm Oct. 11th at the Bridgeport Civic Center.
