How can anglers help veterans through fishing? Find out at 1 p.m. on Yankee Fisherman on the HAN Network when we talk about Project Healing Waters Fly Fishing Inc. and the Back in the Maine Stream, a fishing program for disabled vets. You’ll also learn a simple steelhead fly from Flies By Britton.

We talked to John Iannone about Project Healing Waters, and Bob Pelletier and Marc Bilodeau of Back in the Maine Stream at  Art of the Angler, sponsored by the Catskill Fly Fishing Center and Museum, at the Ethan Allen Inn in Danbury Oct. 31 and Nov. 1.
