Podcast Host and Guide David Perry at Southeastern Fly travels across Tennessee to meet with Jessica Callihan at the Clinch River. Jessica talks of her service to our country and how a fall took her from a helicopter mechanic to pain and multiple surgeries. She talks about the injury and how Project Healing Waters (PHW) helped her to turn the corner from depression, and the pain, to an angler who has a deep love for the sport of fly
David and Jessica talk at length about her time learning from local angler (and all around nice guy) Buzz Buffington. Jessica, who is originally from Michigan, brings us along as she walks through her time on the Clinch while working with PHW and finally into her transition from fly angler into the world of fly fishing art.
This isn't just an episode for those who may know someone who just needs a "boost" in life, this is an episode worth hearing from many points of view.
Stick around for the end as David talks with Jessica about his "death-march" to Fishcreek Falls in Steamboat Colorado. It's a hike that won't soon be forgotten.
