Fly fisher Chad Brown is a unique guy—a former sailor who left the military in a state of depression and confusion, it’s likely that rivers and fly fishing saved his life. Today, Chad devotes much of his life working with veterans and inner-city youth, using fly fishing as a healing endeavor for people in need.
In the video below, Chad talks about fly fishing eastern Oregon’s Owyhee River—a brown trout haven and a fishery that’s growing in popularity because of the true trophies it produces.
But, as Chad points out, and as well all know, it’s so much more than about the fishing. Take a look and see if you don’t recognize the healing power of the river, even if you don’t think you have much healing to do. Enjoy.
