A Hero’s Reward

A Hero’s Reward

Like millions of Americans, we celebrated 4th of July weekend by having a pool party and cookout with family and friends. Whether you went fishing, took the family to the beach or had your own pool party, did you ever take a moment to consider the reason for the 3 day weekend? 235 years of independence doesn't come without sacrifices.  If you have any family members that have ever served in the military or spent more than two minutes in a conversation with anybody who has been wounded in action you will never lose sight of the sacrifices that have been made, and if you are like me, you carry an overflowing bucket of respect and gratitude for those who volunteered, served and in one way or another...sacrificed.

UFE:AHEIn my January blog post entitled, Make It Count!, I invited fans to nominate heroes to be recognized and rewarded with the fishing trip of lifetime. A barrage of nominations poured in through the website, facebook and e-mail.  That was the moment I realized I needed to find a way to award as many of those trips as I could. With the help of some key contacts and support from sponsors who believe in our mission, we are ramping up this program.

We are giving away a Ultimate Fishing Experiences to deserving Heroes who love fishing. If selected, your Hero will be rewarded with a 2-day fishing experience of a lifetime in a world class fishing destination with all expenses paid.

To nominate an American Hero for an Ultimate Fishing Experience please click here, and submit your nomination form today.


This reward is intended to be a surprise.
Please DO NOT involve your Hero in the application process.
