Fishing for Forces is a Non-Profit Organisation with the view that anyone who has been affected by Operational Duties could do with a touch of peace and quiet and would benefit from the healing effect of spending a day by the water.
Our aim is to provide fishing for those returning from Operational Tours. The therapeutic qualities of fishing is such that anyone can benefit from the rest and relaxation of the sport, even if they’ve never fished before. We can cater for veterans from all conflicts (Falklands, Iraq, Afghanistan and WWII).
This also provides, in a modest way, a means by which those of us not in the Services can show our appreciation of what they sacrifice for us.
They watch whilst we sleep, they enter conflict to keep our peace. Will you volunteer to give them a little in return?
