HELLO TO ALL WHO ARE LOOKING AT MY SITE, YOUR HERE EITHER BECAUSE YOU LIKE ME, HAVE A DISABILITY WHICH IS AFFECTING YOUR DAILY LIFE.
AND THE SITE TITLE CAUGHT YOUR ATTENTION.
OR YOUR ABLE BODIED AND YOUR JUST CURIOUS WHAT THIS SITE IS ALL ABOUT. EITHER WAY ALL ARE MOST WELCOME. INFACT WITHOUT THE HELP OF MORE ABLE BODIED PEOPLE OUT THERE WE MAY HAVE A PROBLEM GETING THIS UP AND RUNNING.A Little about me and my reasons and hopes for this venture.FOR MANY YEARS I HAVE ENJOYED FIELD SPORTS AND FISHING HAS BEEN ONE OF MY FAVOURITES. IN ALL ITS GUISES. SEA FISHING ESPECIALLY THOUGH COURSE FISHING HAS ALSO PLAYED A LARGE PART. I ALWAYS TOOK MY HEALTH FOR GRANTED I SUPPOSE, BUT OVER THE PAST FEW YEARS MY HEALTH HAS DETERIORATED TO SUCH AN EXTENT THAT I SPEND A LARGE PART OF MY TIME HOUSEBOUND AND TRIPS I HAVE TAKEN HAVE BEEN PAINFUL AND HAVE TAKEN A LOT OUT OF ME.IN FACT I HAVE ALMOST STOPPED DOING ANY FISHING ALTOGETHER. THIS OF COURSE AFFECTS ONES MOOD AND YOU FIND YOURSELF IN A VICIOUS SPIRAL. OF DEPRESSION. NOT GOOD I AM SURE YOU AGREE !!! AND SOMETHING THAT NEEDS RECTIFYING.
DISABILITY COMES IN MANY FORMS AND STAGES, FOR SOME THE PROBLEMS ARE PSYCHICALLY NOTICEABLE, AND FOR SOME YOU MAY HAVE PROBLEMS, PAIN FOR INSTANCE, THAT IS NOT OUTWARDLY VISIBLE TO OTHERS,
BUT AFFECTS YOUR MOBILITY TO A GREAT EXTENT, YOU MAY BE CHAIR BOUND OR NEED WALKING AIDS OR NOT. BUT I AM SURE YOU WILL AGREE
THAT ONE ALWAYS HAS GOOD DAYS AND BAD.
SOMETIMES A LOT MORE BAD THAN GOOD.WELL THATS WHERE THIS SITE COMES IN, AND ONE OF MY REASONS FOR STARTING IT.I AM SURE THERE ARE OTHERS OUT THERE, WHO ARE IN A SIMILAR POSITION I NOW FIND MYSELF IN, OR PERHAPS YOU HAVE NEVER DONE ANY FISHING BUT ARE LOOKING FOR AN ACTIVITY WHICH MAY REPLACE A SPORT OR HOBBY YOU CAN NO LONGER DO. WHATEVER YOUR REASON WOULDN'T IT BE GREAT TO BE ABLE TO DO SOMETHING WHEN YOU FEEL ABLE? IF THE ANSWER IS YES THEN READ ON.
I FEEL I MUST APOLOGISE FOR THE LACK OF CONTENT TO THE SITE AT THE MOMENT, IT REALLY IS IN THE EARLY STAGES. BUT I HAVE BEEN IN CONTACT WITH THE BRITISH DISABLED ANGLERS ASSOCIATION(BDAA) AND KEITH ARTHUR(TIGHT LINES) AND WILL BE CONTACTING MORE
SO PLEASE FEEL FREE TO GIVE ANY SUGGESTIONS.
MY LONG TERM GOALS ARE TO PROVIDE HELP,SUPPORT, ADVICE,
AND A PLACE TO COME AND SHARE THE HIGHS AND THE LOWS.
NOT JUST FROM ME BY ANY MEANS BUT FROM OTHERS. WHO WILL HOPEFULLY JOIN US ALONG THE WAY. PERHAPS SOME OF YOU HAVE DISCOVERED INGENIOUS LITTLE WAYS TO OVERCOME YOUR PHYSICAL PROBLEMS THAT ENABLE YOU TO CONTINUE TO FISH, AND MAY BE SHARED WITH OTHERS.?
IF SO WHAT YOU WAITING FOR GET SIGNED UP AND GET WRITING.!AND ALSO AND THIS IS MOST IMPORTANT! A CHANCE TO HAVE A LAUGH, Very Happy
AND PUT A SMILE ON EACH OTHERS FACES IN SHARING THIS MOST WONDERFUL OF SPORTS AND PASTIMES, AND SOMETIMES TO EVEN PUT FOOD ON THE TABLE.I HAVE RECENTLY SET UP TO DO SOME STILL WATER FLY FISHING FOR TROUT . AND AM REALLY A COMPLETE NOVICE IN THIS ANYBODY WITH TIPS AND ADVICE ON THIS ASPECT OF OUR SPORT. PLEASE FEEL FREE TO COME ON AND SHARE YOUR WISDOM.PERHAPS THERE ARE TROUT PONDS OUT THERE WHO CATER FOR PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES? IF SO GIVE THEM A PLUG ON HERE.MANY THANKS AND TIGHT LINES ( STEVE )
