Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing Events


On Sunday, June 11, 2017, ESCTU teamed up with Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing (PHWFF) to sponsor a fishing event for veterans with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).  ESCTU members Robert Bishop, Greg DeAngelis, George Jaccoud, Bob Lester, and Harry Zickler guided several veterans to their first trout on a fly on the Musconetcong River in Hampton, NJ.  Seeing the smiles on their faces as they caught their first trout on a fly was priceless!





PHWFF is an organization dedicated to the physical and emotional rehabilitation of disabled active military service personnel and disabled veterans through fly fishing and associated activities including education and outings. 

Below is a list of upcoming 2017 PHWFF events.  If you're interested in volunteering your time and love of fly fishing with our veterans, please contact Stu Shafran at s2rtflyfisher@verizon.net and tell him that you are an ESCTU member.
