SteelShad & Paralyzed Veterans of America
SteelShad Fishing Company Announces Partnership with Paralyzed Veterans of America for its USA Patriot Pack.
March 13, 2018 – East Dorset, Vermont
The SteelShad Fishing Company is proud to announce its year-long campaign to help support Paralyzed Veterans of America (Paralyzed Veterans) through their Mission: ABLE campaign, which encourages veterans and their families, corporate supporters and friends to help create an America where our most severely injured heroes have access to what they’ve earned and deserve: care, jobs and benefits.
SteelShad recently launched the USA Patriot Pack of SteelShad Lures to support and celebrate veterans and the USA Flag. SteelShad partnered with Paralyzed Veterans because of their dedicated work to support injured veterans and their very own adaptive sports Bass Tour. Over the next twelve months, SteelShad will be donating $1.00 of every online retail purchase of its USA Patriot Pack to Paralyzed Veterans.
Stephen Price, CEO of SteelShad remarked, “We are so proud to partner with Paralyzed Veterans to support our nation’s heroes. My own Grandfather was a prisoner of war in Germany during World War II and his stories of starvation and surviving captivity for nine months really impacted me as young man. I am truly honored that we can give back to injured veterans through the sales of our USA Patriot Pack of SteelShad Fishing Lures.”
“We look forward to working with SteelShad over the coming months,” said David Zurfluh, national president of Paralyzed Veterans of America. “Their support and commitment will help ensure we continue to provide free programs and services to support our nation’s heroes.” Jim Root, Pro Staff Team Member of SteelShad says, “Supporting veterans through Bass Fishing is a wonderful opportunity and truly a special honor. I am proud to be partnering with SteelShad and Paralyzed Veterans to announce the USA Patriot Pack of SteelShad Lures.”

About SteelShad In 2016, three best friends partnered together with Captain Steve Niemoeller to launch the SteelShad Fishing Company nationwide. The SteelShad fishing lure was designed and perfected by Anglers and Guides whom are on the water every day. Captain Steve, a full-time fishing guide in Florida, says, “Once you catch your first trophy fish on a SteelShad, it’s hard to go back to other baits.” SteelShad makes fishing simple, easy and fun. Anglers love SteelShad because “Fish Bite It!”
