Silver Creek season opener: Wounded U.S. Army veteran finds some healing

Through the peaceful and rhythmic sport of fly fishing, and the tugs of a mighty trout, U.S. Army Veteran Juan Galvez found a bit of healing on Saturday.

During the catch-and-release season opener at Silver Creek, Project Healing Waters took some wounded veterans such as Galvez out to fly fish for some lunker rainbow trout.

Watch Galvez catch fish and tell his story of dealing with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder.

 

Finally, some images from this scenic day at Silver Creek in Show Low:
