CFFU holds an Introduction to Fly Fishing Day for veterans each year at the Hagan Community Park. Our club volunteers manage several stations demonstrating roll casting in the pond, lawn casting with targets, entomology, knots and fly tying. Veterans receive hands-on exposure to the many aspects of fly fishing. Its a fun and rewarding event for all involved and a small way members of CFFU could say "Thank you for your service" to these Veterans.
We are looking forward to many more activities with the Veterans from Mather and McClellan.
CFFU is very proud that we have formed a partnership with Northern California Health Care Services (NCHCS). The purpose is to encourage local veterans of the Afghanistan or Iraq wars suffering from PTSD and/or depression to learn to fly fish. We hope our efforts will aide in their emotional recovery and enhance rehabilitation by participation in this relaxing, focused, recreational activity.
