Honor Those Who Served with a Veterans Day 2020 Film Festival

We have posted many times about the great organizations that use fly fishing as a way to help veterans deal with or recover from challenges, both physical and mental, resulting from their service. There are many such groups, both local and national, but several that have done a remarkable job getting the word out about their work are Project Healing WatersWarriors and Quiet WatersSoul River Runs DeepVeterans ExpeditionsAWOL Angler, and Back in the Maine Stream.

To celebrate Veterans Day and to honor those who have served, here is a selection of videos produced over the past year. It is a profound experience to see how the sport we love can be used to help those to whom we owe so much. Check out the programs linked above, and consider how you can help, via a donation or participation.
