Saturday Shoutout / Chandalar

1 comment / Posted on / by


A beautiful example of the healing power of fly-fishing.

This remarkable film, from the folks at Simms and Soul River, follows fourteen young people and five U.S. veterans as they float the Chandalar river in Alaska. They learn to row, to fly fish, and to thrive with PTSD.

“This is a story of how U.S Veterans can change lives and find purpose by volunteering their time. The participants come from different worlds and while they know that their experience with trauma is what initially binds them together, it isn’t what defines them.”
