Cast a lifeline, and get a vet in our boat!

On average is costs us $264 to provide a memorable fishing trip to a vet. We provide everything they need to have a meaningful and fun experience. The camaraderie built while on the water has lasting benefits. We also do our best to ensure vets are connected with any supports, resources, or programs that would help improve their lives.

Thanks to Our Sponsors!

A special thanks to our strongest supporters. Together we’re creating a lasting ripple.

We’re In This Together

We know it can feel lonely, but you’re not alone. We’re here to help you ride out the storm.

We are here to help vets and their families reconnect with nature and other people. It is SO much more than fishing.

Fishing is a tool. A favorite tool. One that we’ve found works well over the years.

If you’re a vet who’s struggling or know of one, or a family member of a vet, please apply to attend one of our fishing excursions.
