We will also take a look at and discuss the merits of joining a disability fishing group, or adaptive angling club in your area as many disability organizations and resources are now available to assist people with disabilities in accessing fishing opportunities in addition to promoting adaptive angling.
The Paralyzed Veterans of America sponsors a variety of fishing tournaments for people with disabilities, and there are disability fishing groups and clubs that cater for children with disabilities who enjoy fishing.
Another disability fishing group in America called Fishing Has No Boundaries (FHNB) is a non-profit organization for all persons with disabilities regardless of age, race, gender, or disability, who have opened up the great outdoors for people with disabilities through the world of fishing. FHNB has grown into a National Organization with 23 chapters in 11 states, and enabled thousands of people with disabilities to participate fully in the spirit lifting and morale boosting recreational activity of fishing with a disability.
Perhaps you enjoyed fishing before you became disabled and thought because of your disability, you could never fish, or fish again, or maybe you would like just to try the sport of fishing. In this area of Disabled World we examine disability fishing, what is involved, and places that offer recreational fishing for persons with disabilities.
