At a young age, I began appreciating the art of fly fishing and I am dedicated to sharing my affection for angling with others. Currently, I am a university student who enjoys being active. I play hockey and lacrosse, love the outdoors and seek to grow my organization into a sustainable nonprofit to help advocate to breakdown mental health stigma.
Please watch my short presentation about myself and my mission to grow my grassroots organization dedicated to the outdoors and improve emotional well-being.
Why Fly Fish
Time Flies is a Fly Fishing organization dedicated to breaking down barriers for improved Wellness and Mental Health.
Fishing is an activity that provides overall wellness satisfaction and peace of mind through the rhythmic action of casting the rod in the peaceful outdoors.
Dive Right In
Mental Health problems such as anxiety, depression and PTSD are common for people of all ages and helping others learn that fishing can provide benefits (similar to yoga and meditation) is important to share with others.
Time Flies serves to get people comfortable on the river and raise awareness to boost mental health
Time Flies serves to fulfill the 3 pronged mission:
