Veteran Outreach

OPTU is proud to be the Sponsor of Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing of Ft Huachuca & Southern Arizona since 2009. We have weekly fly tying and rod building sessions in Sierra Vista and monthly sessions in Tucson and the Tucson VA Hospital. In addition we try and provide monthly outings both near and far. These trips provide a time away from the daily issues of their disabilities and a time to connect with others who understand...they've been there.

Jim Owen is the PHWFF Project Lead for Southern Arizona with the help of Joe Vitelli as Outings Lead. Please contact them for Veteran's trips - or

Our mission is to aid the physical and emotional recovery of wounded or injured active military personnel and veterans.
