Fly Fishing as Rehab for Wounded Warriors
The Wounded Warrior Project in conjunction with Disabled Sports USA is offering a program whereby wounded soldiers who are undergoing rehabilatation can enjoy confidence building outdoor activities including fishing and kyaking.
"What they need is something NOW that will show them the promise of a bright and active future. Sport provides this. With the proper adaptive equipment and trained instructors, they can successfully learn a sport--almost any sport—in ONE day. This immediate success provides a foundation for the development of a positive self-image and outlook on life. This transformation is embodied in DS/USA's motto: "I can do this, I can do anything!"
