        thanks for posting this thread, I have been fishing all my life and since my fall I have found it real difficult to fish any more I do get out and do it, but it tears me up and I regret going for several day's later, this is the fault of my boat, need to get a pontoon. there was several rod grips shown that would help greatly. I have been trying to get back in to fly fishing again but have trouble holding the rod while casting (have dropped regular poles in the water several times) due to my lack of grip. I have been told to try a Velcro strap and a bowlers brace for the wrist to help with this problem thought that I would try that this spring. there are lots of ways to set things up for your fishing needs. I have modified my boat in several ways to make it disabled friendly. I need to learn not to do the overnighters by myself, I know it is dangerous but it seems to be my only time I get to be by my self and totally independent.

          Hi Darrel, I'm C5/6 and fly fish three or four times a week during the season.

          I don't have any complex modifications to my rods but have a four inch fighting butt fitted behind the reels and use a two handed grip, trapping the line between my bottom hand and the butt and applying the power with my upper hand on the normal handle.

          With two false casts I can put out a full fly line with a 9' 5 weight rod.

          It feels a bit strange (as if you're Spey casting for salmon) but as long as it works who cares!

              Hi kenf, we only have Atlantic salmon in the UK, I usually have a couple of weeks a year chasing them but my main sport comes from Brown & Rainbow trout.

                Timaru,
                hey thanks for that little tidbit of advise, I may have to go out and get a pole like that.. I can use the butt end to help with leverage, I am getting ready to go out the door so will have to chat more later..

                          hey' I got a magazine in the mail the other day and found this:
                          it is called the "MaxiSwing Casting Aid" it is designed to improve casting distance,and control accuracy. The durable MaxiSwing locks your fly rod into the correct position and allows for a more comfortable grip. the device reduces torquing the rod handle when casting and eliminates wrist and hand fatigue caused by gripping to tightly.
                          this looks very handy and yet inexpensive. their web site is : www.maxiswing.com they only want about 10 bucks.. I have chose to get one of these my self.

                            I have a friend who is paralyzed from the waist, down. He fishes regularly from his own boat, but always with a partner.

                            It's amazing to see the way he gets around! He drive his own vehicle, gets into his own boat from his wheelchair and generally does everything pretty "normally" when it comes to being able to get out and catch fish.

                            He's a great guy with a good all-around attitude

                            On another note, I own a fishing reel review site at http://www.reelreporter.com

                            I have been trying to do some research on electric reels to be used by people who suffer from paralysis, so I can add them to my site, but I haven't had much success finding good information that isn't a sales pitch.

                            Does anyone here have any recommendations for me? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks [IMG]/forum/images/icons/icon14.gif[/IMG]
