Disabled fishing gear
Disabled fishing gear helps people with limited hand strength enjoy a sport many of us take for granted. While fishing can be a very leisure type pursuit, you must have sufficient hand strength to hold the rod or you can’t play. I found a piece of disabled fishing gear that will help many more handicapped individuals enjoy the sport of fishing. Lets take a closer look at this piece of disabled fishing gear.
Disabled fishing gear holds the rod
This piece of engineering was designed by a man to help a friend who had become physically disabled in a fall from a garage roof. With his motor skills greatly compromised, he could no longer hold a fishing rod. With an engineering background and an idea in his head, he designed and machined a tool designed to hold not only a fishing rod, but many other tools that persons with limited hand strength can not. They call it the Receive All because it can be used on such a variety of apparatus. Disabled fishing gear is only one of it’s many roles.
Disabled fishing gear fits any rod and any person
This piece of equipment uses zip ties and velcro. Glad they left the duct tape out because that would have been just weird. The zip ties fasten one piece to your rod of choice, and the velcro means it will fit any forearm and will work over your bare arm, sweatshirt, or bulky coat. It is very versatile. I stumbled across this disabled fishing gear after some carple problems that left me with doctors instructions to let my right hand rest for 6 weeks. I am fortunate enough to no longer need the product, but anyone with limited hand strength who wants to fish can enjoy the benefits of this piece of disabled fishing gear.

Don’t be left out. Disabled fishing gear lets those with needs enjoy the sport. So how big a fish can this product handle? I don’t know for sure, but I did land a 27 pound cat during my rehab, and she fought like a 4 stroke outboard! I was not sure I was ever going to get that fish into the net.
The proof is in the pudding when picking disabled fishing gear
Seeing is often believing in todays day and age, so I had my doctor loan the gear out to one of his patients. He strapped on the disabled fishing gear and took it down to the river for a run at some late summer smallie action. Watch the video above and you may know why he won’t give the gear back to me. I think he fishes better with it than he ever did with out it!
Disabled fishing gear is a valuable tool to those with limited hand strength who need options. If you are looking to try the sport of fishing and need an economical first step, or you are an experienced fisherman who wants an easy way to change rods during the day (you can buy extra adapters and outfit numerous rods) this adapter may be your go to accessory. Remember to keep the fishing fun, and take somebody new out. Everybody loves to fish when they are biting, and disabled fishing gear can help get more people in the game.
