Anglers of Honor is a nonprofit organization that promotes healing and wellness by leading therapeutic fly fishing excursions for veterans and other individuals with physical disabilities and severe emotional injuries.
WHY WE SERVE
With more than 45,000 soldiers injured in Iraq and Afghanistan during the last decade, some families and communities are struggling to cope with the severe emotional and physical injuries sustained by our dedicated service members. Life can be uniquely difficulty for these veterans. Fly fishing has been shown to be a profoundly therapeutic tool for restoring physical function and recreating lives. Anglers of Honor is humbled to assist in that process.
HOW WE SERVE
Anglers of Honor works directly with veterans with disabilities and their families to aid in their recovery and acclimation to life after active duty. We also work with individuals suffering from spinal cord and traumatic brain injury to provide accessible and therapeutic fishing opportunities. Through the Anglers of Honor program, participants and their families learn the basics of fly fishing, which they get to put to immediate use on premier, private fly fishing waters that have been restored to allow access for individuals with disabilities.
Our nonprofit organization is part of a larger alliance of entities with complementary missions to serve veterans and other people with disabilities and their family members. This alliance, which provides nearly 100 outings each year, is managed by the River Deep Foundation. We invite you to learn more about Anglers of Honor's impact in the Foundation's annual report.
