Gone Fishin’

A new project for Veterans In Action and still under development.

This project idea comes directly from the veterans we help who like the tranquillity of fishing.

Veterans In Action take a different approach to fishing as in the solitude and tranquillity are great but we believe veterans grow together so for us fishing is a tool to get veterans involved but to also combine with other activities.

Of course, there will be purely fishing days and overnight events and in addition to this Veterans In Action will combine this into week and two week mini expeditions which will involve our overland vehicles.

Closer to our base we are looking at local fishing lakes for perhaps day fishing with the occasional overnight to get veterans prepared for the longer fishing and activity trips.

In the UK we are in talks with a veteran who runs a fishing lake in Cornwall where we can combine fishing with walks along the South West Coast Path, something Veterans In Action have done many times and have witnessed how transformative it can be to walk along this beautiful tugged coastline.

Veterans In Action are currently intalks with a campsite in Normandy, France with a fishing lake on the campsite but also with some fantastic off road routes nearby for the vehicles and only 90 minutes from the beaches of Normandy for day trips.
