Fly Fishing gets children outdoors, teaches them a skill they can use for a lifetime, and fosters their self esteem all while giving them a community (fly fishing family) they can be a part of.

Fredericksburg, Virginia

I’m Scott Sevigny a Veteran of the Army and Air Force and a foster parent as well. I have found the love for fly fishing over 2 years ago with project healing waters and In the past two years my loving wife and I have adopted two wonderful kids and got to go explore Alaska with them.

JEFF MANGENO, MENTOR

Vienna, Virginia

Jeff Mangeno is a native of McLean VA where he is a criminal defense attorney and avid fisherman on the weekends.
Jeff is an active member of northern va trout unlimited. He began fly fishing in 2017 and caught his first rainbow trout with TMP Founder, Jess Westbrook.
After that, he was “hooked” on fly fishing.  He can be found most weekends fishing for brookies and rainbows in the Shenandoah national park and local rivers with his two teenage boys, friends, German short haired pointer Maggie and standard poodles Harold and Stanley.

“They say you forget your days worries on a trout steam, but that’s not quit it. What happens is that you begin to see where your troubles fit into the grand scheme of things, and suddenly they become more manageable”

Jeff is very excited to share his passion for fly fishing and the outdoors through the Mayfly Project.
