OPENING SEASON FOR THE FLY PROGRAM
The first Fly Program after Covid Lockdown has just completed. Step back only a few weeks ago with a simple phone call between Matt Tripet, Andrew Ettingshausen and myself about doing some filming for Escape with Et…..it quickly escalated into a fully-fledged mental health program for a great group of men who have been involved with The Fly Program.
From Australian sporting legends to business leaders to quiet achievers, over the four days they were tasked physically and mentally. Physically the guys were challenged with long hikes, flyfishing (many for the first time), horse riding, bush cooking and extremely long days. But the real challenges come from the open discussions on our mental challenges both in the past and present, how to manage them and how to face up to them. With lots of emotions shared, there was plenty of hugs, pats on the backs and some tears, great to see guys opening up.
Huge thanks to all the guys attending – Matt Tripet, Andrew Ettingshausen, Lachy McCaffery, Luis Rodriuez, Kyle Bullock, Michael Harrington, Chris Purnell and Damon Banning. You made my job of capturing all the images over the four days a pure pleasure.
