For many folks, they define a day of finding springtime serenity as “gone fishing”.  The desire to get out and go fishing may be a little more challenging for someone with a disability.  Fortunately, there is a non-profit organization that believes everyone should be able to enjoy one of life’s simple pleasures. Fishing Has No Boundaries, Inc. is a non-profit organization whose goal is to “open up the great outdoors for people with disabilities through the world of fishing”.Their goal is to provide fishing opportunities for any person with a disability regardless of age, race, gender or disability. They do this by providing education, training and the use of adaptive angling equipment. They use a lot of different angling equipment such as pole holders, accessible boats and different kinds of electric reels even ones that may have a joystick or chin operating system to accommodate their fishermen.For anglers with disabilities in NW Indiana and beyond who are interested in spending a weekend on or near the lake attempting to catch “the big one”, Fishing Has No Boundaries, Inc. plan to hold a Chapter Event on May 19th & May 20th; 2012 at Pearson’s Marina on Lake Freeman. Through the use of adaptive equipment, participants will be assisted in getting out on Lake Freeman for two relaxing days of fishing. No matter the size, or if you catch one at all, this event aims to provide a good time for all the volunteers, sponsors and participants.If you are interested in finding out more about volunteer or participant opportunities contact:Fishing Has No Boundaries, Inc.Steve and Mary LinderP.O.
