A significant reason why Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing – Colorado Springs is successful and growing to meet an ever-increasing demand, year after year, is because we receive generous and consistent support from individuals, foundations and trusts, local businesses and organizations. We have seen a 600% growth in the number of veterans we serve in the Pikes Peak region and Southern Colorado, conducting a variety of classes and fishing outings in service of our mission. Support, whether it means becoming a sponsor, hosting an event, or donating directly, comes with many rewards.
First and foremost, you can be satisfied that you are lending your support to a worthy cause. PHWFF – COS seeks to serve a population of well over 41,000 disabled veterans who meet the Project Healing Waters eligibility criteria in Southern Colorado. PHWFF – Colorado Springs works hard to assist disabled veterans as they recover and overcome physical and emotional injuries. Support means becoming an integral and critical part of that process and improving the wellbeing of local communities by raising awareness of veteran-related issues.
“We have been fortunate to witness first hand just how therapeutic fly fishing can be for veterans, via settings that promote mindfulness in some of the most beautiful venues imaginable. We continue to be benefactors of the friendships that have resulted from our support of local programs and we are extremely appreciative of the recognition Cutthroat Anglers has received for supporting our military personnel. Simply irreplaceable.”
While we receive invaluable support (liability coverage, training, technical and administrative support) from Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing, Inc., we must raise almost all of our annual budget with your support. Our sponsors annually donate funds, or goods/services which can be liquidated, for direct use in paying program expenses. Our program supporters annually donate goods or services which assist the program in providing services to our participants. Finally, our partners share a common goal or interest with PHWFF-COS and assist the program in providing services to our participants, increasing awareness of the program, or any other number of supporting efforts.

Conejos River Angler’s is a full-service Fly Shop, Guide Service, and cabin rental shop located on the banks of the Conejos River just outside Antonito in Colorado’s scenic San Luis Valley. Pat Blankenship first met the Conejos River where it flows through Trujilo Meadows at 6 years old with a fishing pole in his hand. He has been an avid fly fisherman for thirty years sticking to northern New Mexico in his formative years, but heading a little further north as soon as time allowed. Once he reacquainted himself with the beauty of southern Colorado, he wouldn’t go anywhere else. Pat is a catch and release enthusiast supporting the river and maintaining the quality of fishing in this amazingly gorgeous terrain. Teaching himself the fine art of fly tying has instructed him on ways to catch trout. Let him read the river for you and help you catch big fish.

I graduated with honors from the Boulder College of Massage Therapy in 2006. Over the years, I have learned that the root of the problem is rarely the one spot where we feel pain. It’s never just one spot. In my experience, standard deep tissue massage is at times not enough to create sufficient relief. I take a whole body approach integrating a variety of hands-on styles of bodywork for lasting relief.
