We’re pleased to announce that the 2nd Annual Holy Waters Tournament will take place on August 4, 2018 at Gates Au Sable Lodge in Grayling, Michigan. Now in its second year, the Holy Waters Tournament is an opportunity for Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing veteran participants, supporters and volunteers to come together for phenomenal trout fishing and fellowship on the beautiful waters of the historic Au Sable River. The Holy Waters Tournament is an event that is instrumental in the continued success of PHWFF programs in the Midwest and across the country.
Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing (PHWFF) began in 2005 serving wounded military service members at Walter Reed Army Medical Center returning from combat in Iraq and Afghanistan. Since then, PHWFF has expanded nationwide, establishing its highly successful program in Department of Defense hospitals, Warrior Transition Units, and Veterans Affairs Medical Centers and clinics.
Project Healing Waters brings a high-quality, full-spectrum fly fishing program to an ever-expanding number of disabled active military service personnel across the Veterans Affairs Healthcare System, in Military Hospitals and the Warrior Transition Command. We focus our resources wherever the need is greatest and expand our partner base in the process. PHWFF has become recognized as an innovative leader and model in the field of therapeutic outdoor recreation for the disabled, through its successful application of the sport of fly fishing as a rehabilitation tool.
