“Give a Man a Fish, and You Feed Him for a Day. Teach a Man To Fish, and You Feed Him for a Lifetime.”
Source One Serenity’s fly fishing school is a week-long school which is a complete immersion for beginners into all aspects of fly fishing to introduce and teach fly fishing, enabling veterans to practice this art on their own after the school.
Our fly fishing schools take place at Lemolo Lake, Oregon with accommodation in a cabin Boathouse. The school is at no cost to our veterans. All fly fishing gear is provided as well.
We also introduce our participants to our local abundant aquatic ecosystem and world-renowned gem, the North Umpqua River. This school includes an introduction into restoration work of our streams and rivers, and shows veterans the importance of stewardship of our natural resources.
Source One Serenity’s fly fishing school program has only two requirements:
- be a combat veteran of any era and have combat related condition(s) such as combat-related disability ratings, mental health disorders and similar
- AND be committed to life, growth and betterment!
Our next school is on June 9-15. Due to cancellations, we still have a couple of spots available. If you are interested, give us a call at 541.580.5655.
After you fill out the application form, we will get back to you within 7-10 days. If you meet all the requirements, it is not guaranteed that you will be selected. Thank you for your understanding. When you are selected, you will also receive a curriculum and a packing list. Please direct any questions to Elena at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Be able to hike on uneven terrain up to 2 miles in one day.
Source One Serenity has an active ZERO ALCOHOL and DRUG policy during the entire school. Source One Serenity also has a SERVICE DOG acknowledgement and agreement.
