Wildwood Outfitters Blog and Fishing Report
"I wanted to do something different, so I created Semper Fly Rods as a channel to support disabled veterans and their families by donating 10% of our annual rod sales to the Semper Fi Fund."
Fly fishing companies first have to have a quality product or service to offer the angling community. Tony's skill and expert craftsmanship at rod building checks that box emphatically. What makes Semper Fly Rods so unique is their incredible commitment to veterans groups. Ten percent of their yearly sales go to the Semper Fi Fund, Toys for Tots, and Trout Unlimited. That's a level of charity that is matched by few in the business world.
For Tony, fly fishing is about more than just catching fish or numbers of fly rods sold. As a disabled veteran he knows how difficult it can be at times, and fly fishing is one of his outlets where he achieves the solace necessary to unwind and de-stress. Lately, it's taken on a new meaning as it has allowed Tony to spend time with his wife and daughter.
Fly fishing gives Tony an outlet to unwind and reach some peace of mind, it provides an opportunity to spend time with family, and it allows him to give back to the veteran and conservation community through his generous charitable donations. What could be any better than that?
