We Meet Regularly, Join the Fun!
We have regular meetings on the first and third Monday of each month. Meetings are held in a large space located in Midtown Atlanta near Georgia Tech. Address: 198 14th Street NW, Atlanta GA (Map Below). If you plan on coming to a meeting please click here to RSVP (we need to make sure we have enough pizza!) Also, please be sure you are on our mailing list so you will get updates about meetings, etc., by clicking the Join Us Button above.
We also try to fish on the third weekend of the month. More opportunities to fish happen regularly and is another great reason to be on our mailing list.
During our meetings our volunteers will introduce the world of flyfishing to you. During your first meeting you'll attend a "Fly Fishing 101" session. After that you have your choice to work on building a fly rod, tying flies, casting, or just socializing with the other vets in attendance.
Some of the best fly tyers in Atlanta are eager to sit down and share their knowledge with you. Fly tying is relaxing and also helps with hand eye coordination. At the end of the night you'll walk away with "bait" for your next fishing trip!
Some say catching a fish on a fly you tied and a rod you built is the ultimate in satisfaction. You can really let your creativity come out on your rod. Many Project Healing Waters vets compete annually in a rod building competition and in fact one of our vets won 2nd place last year.
Our volunteers, many of whom are veterans themselves, are great teachers. We have certified fly casting instructors that lead our volunteers and make sure we are providing you with the tools you need for when you hit the water.
GUidED Fishing Trips
We pair you up with local fishermen and women that love to fish and who are great providing personalized instruction. Any equipment you need to borrow will be provided. When you get to the point where you might want to start buying your own gear we'll help guide you so you don't break the bank.
Please park behind the building. We are located just East of the Silver Skillet Resturant
