View Full Version : Quad Fishing

I am a c5-6 quad with no hand function, some tricepts in my left arm and none in my right. I am curious if anyone out there goes fishing? And what kind of adaptations do they use. I want to cast myself but don't know how to hold the button on the reel down and cast at the same time. I would also like to reel the record breakers in myself as well.....any ideas

Hi There Marty.
Im a c5/6 also and i do a lot of fishing.I use whats called a strong arm,it's just a type cuff that fit's on your forearm,and also what works will for me is an open faced reel,its easier to work the bale than the button ones.I think anyways.If you have any other questions feel free to e-mail me at email@example.com anytime buddy..
