Fishing

with Disabilities

Thousands of individuals with disabilities participate fully in this sport.  This is a spirit lifting, morale boosting, trouble free recreational activity that is as old as man himself and one that can be enjoyed by young and old alike.

A good example of the work done to bring the sport to the wheelchair user can be seen on the Shannon Fishery Board website.  Their website gives comprehensive details of the type and number of wheelchair facilities available to you in their region.

The website below is an excellent resource for anyone interested in angling.  They provide another great guide to wheelchair accessible locations around the country and give details of what you can expect to catch.

See, also their section on wheelchair accessible boats and their locations.
