BENEFITS OF THE PROGRAM a

U.S. military veterans will gain the confidence while feeling a sense of accomplishment through an outdoor recreational setting. Flyin' Heroes assists in enriching the veterans lives through a therapeutic recreational opportunity that encourages the development of life skills and personal growth through teamwork, positive attitude, and achievable results

Fishing is simply the tool that allows us to connect with our local community of veterans.

Our organization focuses on the importance of creating lasting relationships and life long memories on the river. The program is open to all veterans regardless of era or branch served. All that is required is a copy of a DD-214 showing an "honorable discharge".
 

THE EXPERIENCE

The program also offers fishing trips on inland lakes throughout West Michigan. Each participant will be instructed on the basic techniques of fly and or light tackle fishing. Fishing activities are held from within a drift boat, on a riverbank or physically wading into the river depending on the comfort level of each participant.  

Each fishing trip will range from 4-8 hours and includes a streamside meal prepared by Flyin' Heroes. In addition, all the necessary fishing tackle, rods, and waders are provided.
