The host for Fish’n Trips For Heroes is Jeff Mason. He is a lifelong resident of Washington State. He started fishing at the age of 5 for “anything that will bite”. 52 years later he is on the same quest!
In January of 2013 he retired from a 34 year career with 7-Eleven, Inc. Prior to retiring he developed a plan that would allow him to give back to his local community. To that end he volunteers several mornings each week in a local grade school assisting first graders in developing their reading skills. Having never served in the military he felt a strong pull to serve those who did serve our country. As such he created “Fish’n Trips For Heroes”. “Fish’n Trips For Heroes” provides fishing experiences in Washington state to military personnel that have been wounded in service to the United States. These trips are free for the military guest.
Jeff is now a licensed fishing guide in the state of Washington. This includes USCG certification, First Aid training, and insurance. Jeff is licensed by the United States Coast Guard, The State of Washington, First Aid Certified, and Insured.
