Tenkara Rolling Warriors

Ben with rod

Ben with rod

During my first tenkara trout fishing experience in a small stream in upstate NY, and enjoying catch two nice brook trout, it dawned on me that my wheelchair bound patients who love to fish might find this the answer to their challenges. Nothing could be simpler, easily portable and more efficient than Tenkara. So I bought a starter kit for my patient Ben, and he was thrilled and ready to watch your video’s, set up his rod and go for it.

If you’d like to set up a fund to give gear to wheelchair warriors I’m in.

The Tenkara Guides LLC, based in Salt Lake City, UT and Louisville, KY have done a lot of work with disabled individuals. I don't know if there is in fact a fund of that sort, but if not, they would be the ones to run it.

Track chairs for veterans
by: Bob

The independence fund collects donations to help provide track chairs for disabled veterans so they can enjoy the outdoors, including fishing. I have donated western and tenkara rods to Healing Waters, a group that uses fly fishing to help in rehabilitation of veterans.

As age slows my pace, I will become more like the heron.


The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
