The Flatland Fly Fishers are proud to be a member club of the Fly Fishers International. If you are as concerned as we are about the future of Fly Fishing and the delicate habitat it takes to support wild fish, consider joining the FFI. The Federation is divided into 14 regional councils, the Flatland Fly Fishers is a member of the Southern Council. The Southern Council holds its annual conclave the first weekend of October in Mountain Home, AR.
In 2019 the Flatland Fly Fishers signed an agreement to partner with Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing to help create a local program in Wichita, KS.
Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing, Inc. (PHWFF) began in 2005 serving wounded military service members at Walter Reed Army Medical Center returning from combat in Iraq and Afghanistan. Since then, PHWFF has expanded nationwide, establishing its highly successful program in Department of Defense hospitals, Warrior Transition Units, and Veterans Affairs Medical Centers and clinics.
Project Healing Waters brings a high-quality, full-spectrum fly fishing program to an ever-expanding number of disabled active military service personnel across the Veterans Affairs Healthcare System, in Military Hospitals and the Warrior Transition Command. We focus our resources wherever the need is greatest and expand our partner base in the process. PHWFF has become recognized as an innovative leader and model in the field of therapeutic outdoor recreation for the disabled, through its successful application of the sport of fly fishing as a rehabilitation tool.
