Help give a vet a chance to attend this unique fly fishing opportunity

Help us fund our inaugural NoLa fly fishing trip. We have not run a fly fishing trip in a few years and we hope to use this trip to launch our fly fishing program into the future. The funds we are raising are broken down into trip costs and film creation. The trip costs are at $15,000 (Lodging, guides, food, transportation, etc.). We will be creating a film with Grit and Thistle Film Co. for an additional $15,000. Please take a moment to watch the film below that was produced by Grit and Thistle Film Co on our Alaska fly fishing expedition.

Our goal is to raise the money for this trip, make a film, and use the film to help us fund our fly fishing program trip expansion. If you donate $2,000 or more to this trip, we can offer your logo or name on the film. Contact Nick at for more information.

Veterans Expeditions utilizes every dollar donated to support a vet getting outside and plugged into our community. We stretch every donation to sponsor as many veterans going on trips as possible. We run over 90% of our trips and expeditions in house. The only trips we hire guides outside of our leadership are fly fishing and white water rafting. VetEx is happy to be getting vets back on the water fly fishing, thank you for helping make this happen. We have had over 5000 military veterans outside with us over our 13 years of operations. We see around 700 vets outside with us annually.
