ORVIS Presents: Saved By Axe

Axe is a service dog trained to help U.S. war veteran Chad Brown stay calm in the face of his PTSD symptoms. Before Chad had Axe in his life, it wasn’t easy for him to cope with the effects of his life as a soldier in combat. Now, Chad and Axe are inseparable, everywhere Chad goes, Axe is by his side. It’s no different when Chad needs some time on the river to fly fish, his faithful companion is always right there with him.

Some of the fly fishing gear used by Chad can be seen at the ORVIS web store.
