Written by: Phil Monahan


In honor of Veterans Day, PBS stations around the country are broadcasting “Not Yet Begun to Fight,” a documentary about how fly fishing can help heal, or at least ameliorate, some of the physical and emotional pain that combat veterans deal with on a daily basis.

“Not Yet Begun to Fight” focuses on five warriors who join retired Marine Col. Eric Hastings for a week of fly-fishing in Montana through the Warriors and Quiet Waters Foundation. Hastings, who flew missions “high above the death and destruction” in Vietnam, returned home to Montana in 1969 battling dark dreams. His solace was fly fishing.
