BROOKVILLE — U.S. Army veteran Bill Kellman was wary.

After hearing about Project Healing Waters, a program which aids in the rehabilitation of disabled veterans through fly fishing outings, he wasn't sure if it was for him.

At the time he learned of the program, Kellman, a Vietnam vet, said he struggled with socializing.

"If my wife were here, she would tell you I never got out of the house," he said. "I would just stay home because I didn't like dealing with people. I had no friends, I had nobody I wanted in my life except my wife."
