In yesterday’s blog, golfing for people with disabilities was highlighted as one of the great adaptive activities of the spring season. Well, if golfing isn’t your thing and you still want to be outside but require activities that are more accessible for individuals with disabilities, then Fishing Has No Boundaries of Mid-North Indiana, Inc. may have just the activity for you.
Fishing Has No Boundaries, Inc. is an educational, nonprofit volunteer organization that is dedicated to opening up the great outdoors to anglers with disabilities through the world of fishing. They have a number of devices to aid the disabled angler and they provide a fishing experience for individuals who would otherwise not have the opportunity to participate in such an activity.
Annually, Fishing Has No Boundaries of Mid-North Indiana hosts a two-day event that gives anglers with disabilities the chance to enjoy an organized fishing trip. This year’s event will take place on May 21-22 at Pearson’s Marina on Lake Freeman in Monticello, Indiana. The event is $50 per participant and $10 for attendants. Accommodations can be made for individuals who are unable to pay. No participant is turned down for lack of funds.
All participants will be provided with:
- Experienced Guides
- Boat and Bait
- Meals and Entertainment
- Fishing Cap and T-shirt
- Awards and Prizes
In addition to the annual fishing trip, Fishing Has No Boundaries also provides day trips throughout the summer months for those participants who are unable to tolerate a full weekend on the water.
