Rudy and Neal Go Fishing is a documentary film about two guys going fishing in South Florida's beautiful waters. But it's not your ordinary fishing trip. 

Meet Rudy and Neal. 

Rudy is a U.S. Army veteran suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Neal is a tournament angler with an unusual professional background.

Fishing is part of Rudy's therapy. 

There’s a lot at stake for veterans with PTSD -- 20 veterans commit suicide every day in America.

Rudy spent a majority of his military career in multiple war zones and when Neal is not competing in a fishing competition, he makes a living cutting hair in Miami. Watch how the simplicity and tranquility of fishing in this remote paradise allow this vet to reconnect with nature and start to heal.

I love how much I learn on every show and can tell you if a Python can really eat an alligator whole. I've freelanced as a documentary and television editor for the past 14 years. My shows have aired on National Geographic, Smithsonian, PBS, Discovery, Spike TV and the Documentary Channel. I've worked on shows that have won Emmys and numerous festival awards. I've also learned about the history of early African-American aviators and way too much about Neil Diamond.
