Fishing Has No Boundaries�, Inc.(FHNB) is a non-profit organization whose goal is to open up the great outdoors for people with disabilities through the world of fishing. They introduce specialized adaptive equipment to aid the disabled angler and create avenues of recreation for many, who thought because of their disability, could never fish, or fish again. Any person with a disability is eligible to participate in their events, regardless of disability. There are absolutely no restrictions on type of disability, age, race, gender, state or residence or any other factor.
This is the "Granddaddy" of all the events, where the concept and first event was held on the Chippewa Flowage in 1988. Since that time over 1500 participants and hundreds of volunteers at this 3-day event have been involved in a fishing experience that they may have only dreamed about before. Experienced guides, boats, bait, fish cleaning, meals, emergency medical care, awards, and prizes are made available to each participant.
This year's event will be held on May 20-22, 2005.
