I’m writing this while listening to Clay Dyer, a professional bass fisherman, who doesn’t have any limbs. Never heard of this guy, but found his video when I was researching C.A.S.T. for Kids. Turns out that this truly amazing fisherman is also the group’s spokesman. It’s based in Renton, Wash.
Closer to home, check out the Daniel Hernandez Youth Foundation. Another professional fisherman, Hernandez started “Meet Me at the Lake” to help under-served children get their first fishing experience.
Question: When are flyfishers going to start doing something like this on our river? If you’ve been following these posts, you’ll remember I met a couple of kids a few weeks ago, and we all had fun fishing for carp.
At least we know that the equipment is there. Bob Milne explains the ins and outs of the Redington Crosswater Youth Outfit in an informative post.
See you on the river, Jim Burns
