The Fishing Experience (FX) is the core design of each of our program models.
Each FX provides an opportunity for participants to connect with others while learning fly fishing.
Warriors & Quiet Waters prides ourselves on providing the most impactful experience possible by surrounding our participants with dedicated volunteers and professional guides that foster a beneficial environment. Our participants leave an FX feeling confident in the new skill and with a renewed sense of connection.
Warriors & Quiet Waters currently offers six unique program models to support post-9/11 combat veterans and their loved ones.
The Solo Fishing Experience
Women’s Solo Fishing Experience
The Couples Fishing Experience
Military Caregiver Fishing Experience
The Family Fishing Experience
COMMIT Partnership Fishing Experience

The Solo Fishing Experience:
A Solo Fishing Experience (FX) brings six Warriors together for a week of camaraderie and world-class fly fishing. WQW serves Warriors who are at all stages of transition and strives to create a setting for positive growth and connection. Outcomes often include a reduction in feelings of isolation, better mental health, improved relationships, and improved fly fishing skills.
