North Texas Patriot Anglers

Patriot Anglers is dedicated to the physical and emotional rehabilitation of disabled active military service personnel and disabled veterans through fly fishing and associated activities, including education and outings. Patriot Anglers recruits veterans predominantly, but not exclusively, from Dallas, Tarrant, Denton, and Collin counties.
We at Patriot Anglers are excited to be in our 4th year of operation. Beginning with a dream, $5000.00 and one fly rod we have now taken over 300 different wounded/sick veterans fly fishing. With an estimated 250,000-750,000 veterans in North Texas we have much to do. Our goals are lofty and so are our needs. Items that would enhance the healing ability and growth of our program. Our needs are: (1) a vehicle to transport veterans to local events (2) our own wheelchair that would make even the most severely wounded veteran able to reach any body of water. (3) our own supply of waders/boots so that we would be more independent as an organization. (4) new rods/reels/vests so that we could outfit all our vets on the river. (5) wading staffs to ensure the safety of all participants. (6) winter clothing and rain gear to ensure every participants comfort.
