One of the many reasons I am proud to be a fly fisher is that it is a unique fraternity that often goes out of its way to do some tremendous things. Sometimes it involves restoring a river to its historical flows by removing old dams and improving banks to prevent erosion. Sometimes it is through creating and sponsoring amazing programs like Casting for Recovery, a for survivors of breast cancer, and Project Healing Waters, a program for wounded vets.
As a vet myself, I am proud to be both a fly fisher and one who stood for his country. If you have some time or some money you can contribute to Project Healing Waters or CFR, please do. I think you will receive far more than you give.
