Video: “Every Hour,” the Healing Power of Fly Fishing

Jessica Callihan wears a lot of hats. She’s a fine artist, the creative director of DUN Magazine, a fly-fishing instructor, and a public speaker. She’s also a Navy veteran, who was injured while training to become an aviation electrician. Like most vets, she’s known some fellow servicemen who have committed suicide after returning from battle.

The title of the film Callihan made with Capt. Mark Nutting–a South Carolina saltwater guide and fellow vet–refers to the fact that 22 veterans per day takes their own lives, almost one for every hour. Callihan says that the goal was “to create a film showcasing fly fishing’s ability to be powerful in the healing process, as well as raise awareness to the tragedy of veteran suicide.”

On Giving Tuesday, consider making a donation to Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing in honor of those we have lost.
