Tight Lines for Vets




A non-profit organization that offers Vets a chance to interact with nature, form a new sense of camaraderie amongst other anglers, and provide our mission-driven vets with something to focus on.

Currently, there are over 20 million veterans in the United States. That is by far more than any other country in the world. About 20 to 30 percent (although likely higher) of these veterans are experiencing PTSD, most of which are silently suffering.
These veterans encounter daily challenges, even years after returning home from combat. They are still trying to adjust to civilian life, trying to find that job or career that gives them the same sense of pride and trying to reconnect with loved ones. Many are still suffering from guilt over events that occurred during their deployments. Survivors’ guilt is real and there are many who suffer.
