Doing Good: Veterans find healing through fly fishing

Akenex’s Knwa/KFTA -Project Healing Waters is helping the body and emotional rehabilitation of disabled veterans, and can achieve this through very popular hobbies.

Air Force veteran Michael Swanner knew his fishing gear.He has done it from different flying fishing bait to a pole.He knows what fish likes.

"If you make a wrong thing in a wrong way, you will forget it. He said that they will still ignore the nose," he said.

Swanner shared all these insights with other veterans as the person in charge of the plan for the project for the treatment of water and fishing in the project.For non -profit organizations, tie flies do not have to maintain stable hands, but to keep their hands busy.

Swanner said: "The buildings of flying straps and rods are indeed beneficial to PTSD because you focus on what you are doing, not worry about anything else."

When the gear is ready, whether it is a day trip or a longer adventure, the veterinarian will take it out of the water.

Swanner said: "Overnight, we must get approval and approval in advance. We must get money in advance through donations."
