Don’t miss this unique opportunity to try your hand at some of the area’s finest fishing while helping to raise awareness and funds for our cause.
Each year we help organize, manage, and attend special events, gatherings, shows, and conventions throughout the United States. We also sponsor several fundraising and charitable events, and we like to keep everyone up to date on things we do and other fine events going on in the Washington DC metro area and beyond.
