Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing Program
Combining his love and skill of fly fishing with his respect and compassion for veterans, Morris has partnered with Project Healing Waters. In 2005, Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing (PHWFF) began serving wounded military service members at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, who were returning from combat. PHWFF uses the therapeutic properties of the serene sport of fly-fishing to treat PTSD and other combat related conditions. 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.
The Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing program provides basic fly fishing, fly casting, fly tying and rod building classes, along with clinics participants ranging from beginners who have never fished before, to those with prior fly fishing and tying experience who are adapting their skills to their new abilities. Morris is a supporter of PHWFF and is very active in its various programs throughout the year.
