FISH WITH A HERO

Fish With a Hero was founded by Larry Kendzior, Bill Coyne and Tommy Hogan in 2013. Larry Kendzior is a business consultant and former Army Captain. Bill and Tommy are veterans who helped start Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing in the Middle Tennessee region. In its first year, $3,500 was raised to provide a two day trip for 30 wounded vets. In 2014 and 2015, we raised approximately $25,000 each year to bring 40 wounded vets to the Florida Keys for two days of fishing provided by local guides and charter captains.
In 2016 we raised $20,000 to bring 16 vets from the PHWFF national program for two days of guided fishing out of WorldWide Sportsman in Islamorada in the Florida Keys.

PROJECT HEALING WATERS

Last year, over 3,500 Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing (PHWFF) volunteers helped over 7,400 disabled veterans and military personnel. Founded in 2005, PHWFF is a unique, community-based, nonprofit 501(C)(3) volunteer organization dedicated to the physical and psychological rehabilitation of injured active-duty military personnel and veterans with disabilities. This is accomplished through the therapeutic and rehabilitative benefits of fly fishing, patience and relationship-building. Participants include: active duty military, disabled veterans, Guard, and Reserve personnel with VA disability ratings. Whether wounded in combat, injured in vehicle or training accidents, or suffering debilitating illness, PHWFF serves all disabled veterans. Because of this, PHWFF is in a position to lead the way in helping today’s young disabled veterans throughout their lifetime.

We will be fishing out of the luxurious South Seas Island Resort, whose generosity is also providing meals and accommodations.
This event runs October 24th-27th.
