For those about to fish, we Salute you.

Warrior Fishing provides Active Duty, Retired and Military Veterans the means to fish for free.

Nestled in the heart of Fuquay Varina, North Carolina, Take A Warrior Fishing, Inc. (TAWF) is not just another non-profit. We are a dream realized, a commitment symbolized, and a salute to the indomitable spirit of our military community. As a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization based in Wake County, our mission transcends traditional gestures of gratitude.

At TAWF, we merge the serenity of fishing with our deep respect for those who've donned the uniform, whether active, reserved, retired, or veterans. Through fishing, we provide moments of tranquillity, camaraderie, and joy to the warriors who've given so much. By collaborating with generous boat owner/operators, we ensure that every military personnel gets a chance to experience the joy of fishing – absolutely free of cost.

Because at the end of the day, it's not just about fishing; it's about giving back, sharing experiences, and casting lines of hope and unity.

What We Do

We organize free fishing tournaments throughout the year, called Warrior Fishing. In 2024 we are planning to expand to at least 2 events, with one being at Shearon Harris Lake and the other being at Jordan Lake. TAWF also offers a portal where the military community can submit their name throughout the year and be lined up with a fisherman that can take them fishing at any time. The ultimate goal is to offer events throughout the State of NC, in both fresh and saltwater, and maybe throughout the SE United States.

Our essence lies in understanding the profound impact of a fishing trip — the peace, the camaraderie, and the shared memories. Through every boat ride and fishing event, we aim to offer a slice of relaxation and appreciation to our military heroes.

For us, every fishing trip is a tribute, every catch a story, and every warrior a valued member of our extended family.

What sets us apart?

Comprehensive Military Support

From Veterans and Active Duty personnel to Reserves and the Retired – we ensure every member of our vast military family is celebrated and supported.

Zero-Cost Fishing Experience:

Our commitment is steadfast: every warrior fishes for free. This is our token of gratitude for their invaluable service.

Year-Round Fishing Opportunities

Beyond our flagship events, we provide a portal for warriors to connect with enthusiastic boat owners. This ensures fishing adventures are not limited by calendars.

Expanding Horizons

Starting with Shearon Harris Lake, our vision is to span across North Carolina and beyond, reaching fresh and saltwater destinations throughout the Southeast U.S.

Community Building

More than fishing, we foster bonds. Warriors, boat owners, and volunteers come together, forging lasting connections and memories.
