Risen Fly started this program in partnership with Outdoor Immersion in the Fall of 2017.  We met some local veterans and saw how fly fishing can be a great asset to many of them.  We witnessed fine motor skills that may have been lost from an injury refined through fly tying, stress lifted from spending a day in nature, and bonds created by spending time together with other veterans.  The returned blessings to us have been worth its weight in gold.  However, we lost our private funding due to cuts in 2019 and decided to put together an opportunity for you to help fund these veterans. 

Our program is stationed in the Pittsburgh, Pa area and provides local veterans the opportunity to learn fly fishing skills.  This involves 4 classes teaching the basics of fly fishing and fly tying as well as on the water lessons.  Each veteran receives a tying kit with tools, a rod, reel, line, backing, and box of flies.  The cost to sponsor the veteran for all of this is $300.  We also provide trip opportunities for these veterans as well.  All proceeds from the sponsoring packages below goes towards a veteran to go through the class.  Thank you in advance for your generosity and thank you all who bravely served our country!

This program is in partnership with Outdoor Immersion.  They assist in helping post 9/11 veterans deal with the recovery spiritually, mentally and physically from their time serving.  Learn more about Outdoor Immersion HERE
