Project Healing Waters (PWH)
Project Healing Waters (PWH) is dedicated to the physical and emotional rehabilitation of disabled active military service personnel and veterans through fly fishing. PHW was founded in 2005 at Walter Reed Army Medical Center with the help of local Trout Unlimited (TU) and Federation of Fly Fishers (FFF) volunteers. PWH Alaska was established in 2010 by the AFF and is coordinated by AFF volunteers. PHW staffs tying clinics at three locations for active injured military service members and disabled veterans. The regular fly tying session meets at the William Jack Hernandez Sport Fish Hatchery on Thursdays from 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm; the tying clinic at the VA Center in Wasilla is meeting on a weekly basis.
For additional information about activities, trips, becoming a volunteer, or donating equipment, money or tying materials, please contact PHW at PHWAlaska@gmail.com or Jan Schnorr at Janiceinak@gmail.com or visit the PWH Facebook page.
