SFC Michael Anderson (USAR)
We were excited to host our first couples retreat in July 2019 with the arrival of Mike and Hope Anderson of San Antonio, Texas. Mike, a 25 year Veteran (USAR-R) came out fishing with his wife summer 2019. This was our first of hopefully many couple retreats, as we here at AWOL can appreciate, and truly value the sacrifices of Veteran spouses.

Our Flagship Trip
" I cannot thank Awol Angler enough for this past weekend! My brother and USMC veteran Wes Dyer has truly delivered the experience of a lifetime. Through extremely proficient guiding and instruction, his efforts afforded me the privilege of catching my first trout on the famous San Juan river. I'm Proud to have had the privilege to be the first client, of what I'm sure will be many, to live the Awol Angler dream." Sgt. Edge.
We are eternally grateful for your service to this country Edge.
