December 7 Speaker- George Gaines, Regional Coordinator for Project Healing Waters

An Update on the Journey of Healing with Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing

George Gaines, National Capital Region Coordinator for Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing, Inc., will cover the growth, evolution and development of Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing from its humble beginnings at the original Walter Reed Army Hospital in DC more than a dozen years ago to its national, indeed international, prominence today. George played a key role in the genesis of PHW.

This was a journey that was aided by the support and participation of the members of the Northern Virginia Chapter of Trout Unlimited. George will address what we have achieved together and explore the exciting opportunities available to continue to grow our joint efforts to serve and heal injured active military and disabled veterans across the National Capital area.

Donate Gear
George also will be collecting gear for PHW, so if you have any rods, reels, flies or other gear that you’d like to donate, bring it to the December meeting.
