Back In The Maine Stream, a nonprofit organization of disabled veterans with a strong desire to help other disabled Maine veterans increase their quality-of-life and heal physical and emotional trauma through recreational fishing, are looking for a few new members.

Honorably discharged Maine veterans with a disability of 10 percent or more can become a member. Members help organize fundraisers, go on scheduled 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 such as fly tying, knot tying, rod-building, fishing techniques, discussing upcoming fishing trips, and the usual fishing stories.

The Augusta meeting is held at 9 a.m. at the American Legion Post 205, 396 Eastern Ave., the fourth Wednesday of each month. The Portland meeting is scheduled for 9 a.m. the second Wednesday of each month at the Maine Veteran’s Home, U.S. Route 1 in Scarborough.
