Smith Industries sponsored fishing trip for Skills4Life was a success!
Heroes join fishing pros for a Skills4Life event to remember sponsored by Smith Industries.
DEL RIO, TEXAS (JUNE 23, 2021) –Military Warriors Support Foundation program Skills4Life joined Chris Smith of Smith Industries on June 3rd-6th for the 5th year of the Smith Industries Bass Fishing event. This year, nine combat-wounded heroes were paired with nine boat captains for a memorable experience. Bass Master Elite fisherman Ray Hanselman led the charge and contributed his time and experience for the heroes attending, making this a memorable and exciting trip to remember. Ray Henselman’s sponsors, AFTCO and Skeeter Boats, even got in the action with Skills4Life by providing shirts, hats and other goods to all the captains and heroes.
Awards were given each day to the heroes who caught the largest and second-largest fish out of Lake Amistad. In addition, a bottle of Devil’s River Whisky that all the attending heroes signed was given to the boat captain of the hero with the biggest fish. This was a great event. Many memories were made, and the event provided the heroes an opportunity to enjoy nature, fellow heroes, attendees and the sport of fishing. Military Warriors looks forward to working with Chris Smith next year while bringing a new group of veterans to experience an amazing Skills4Life event.
