AUGUSTA — Back In The Maine Stream, a nonprofit organization of disabled veterans helping other disabled Maine veterans, is seeking new members.

The organization’s purpose is to increase quality of life and heal physical and emotional trauma through recreational fishing.

Honorably discharged Maine veterans with a disability of 10 percent or more are eligible to join. Members help organize fundraisers, go on fishing trips, attend monthly meetings and assist other veterans in doing the same.

The monthly meetings cover organizational business and usually include some kind of learning sessions like fly-tying, knot-tying, rod-building, fishing techniques, discussing upcoming fishing trips and sharing fishing stories.

Meetings are held at 9 a.m. the fourth Wednesday of the month at the American Legion Post 205, 396 Eastern Ave., Augusta; and at 9 a.m. the second Wednesday of the month at the Maine Veterans’ Home, Route 1, Scarborough.
