Reel Thanx is dedicated to the men and women of our armed forces. It began as a desire to show our support and thanks to these brave young men and women.


Reel Thanx was founded in 2007 when founder Mike Mundy was inspired to take a soldier fishing after reading a similar ad on texasfishingforum.com. Mike contacted his friend Terry Johnson, founder of “Show of Support Military Hunt” in West Texas, for help in lining Mike up with a soldier who could use a fishing getaway. One soldier quickly turned into five; four were from Special Forces and one from the 82nd airborne and all had been wounded, some of them horribly. Many friends joined in with Mike in taking this first group of guys down to Lake Amistad in Del Rio, TX and with the help of generous donors, they were able to host the soldiers for a three-day weekend trip.
