Rod Building Instructor
Brandon Henning, a Florida native, joined the Florida Army National Guard in 2000 then active Army in 2004. He deployed to a combat zone five times in his 15 years of service. Brandon was medically retired in 2015 due to combat related injuries.
Throughout his life fishing has been an enjoyable activity for Brandon. After retirement from the military, it became more than an occasional hobby as he found solace, comradery, and healing from unhealthy coping habits. In late 2015 Brandon started guiding with Heros On The Water through which he had the opportunity to attend a rod building class.
He enjoys working with veteran-focused groups to share his knowledge, experience, passions, and to spread the healing qualities of fishing, kayaking, and rod building. Helping others through tough times with ways he has found helped him in a positive and constructive manner is what drives him to continue this mission.
