The Trout Unlimited Veteran Service Partnership works with a host of great partners. One of those partners is Project Healing Waters. And one new TU Business member in Pennsylvania is working to improve the lives of veterans through fly fishing and Project Healing Waters.
Nathaniel Treichler gets that. He’s a believer in fishing and in veterans. And when he started The Fly Crate, he knew he wanted to give back to those who had given so much for all of us. As he says, “The statistics from the Department of Veterans Affairs shocking. Too many of our veterans are struggling in a host of different ways. Too many take their own lives. How many of these veterans could we help if we put a fly rod in their hands and gave them the support they needed?”
The Fly Crate is a community-minded fly fishing company in Pennsylvania that strives to assist veterans by making monthly donations to Project Healing Waters. For every six flies purchased from their monthly membership program and online fly shop, they donate one fly to PHW as part of their Healing Flies Program. As Nathaniel says, “Our goal is simple. We want to make smiles and create memories.”
