Take A Vet Fishing (TAVF) was created to “give back” to our veterans by offering a day of fishing to those that have served our country.

Approximately twenty percent of the 2.3 million veterans returning from the war in Iraq and Afghanistan suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and/or depression. Most of them will never seek help. TAVF is a not for profit 501(c)3 created to help fight PTSD and depression. With the assistance of volunteer guides and mentors, Take A Vet Fishing provides a relaxed outing and social interaction that allows the soldiers to transition back into their daily lives.
