DO IT YOURSELF ENTRY --- PURPOSE: To enable an individual with quadriplegia to fish. The rig is built of tough half-inch Lexan plastic and fastens securely to the wheelchair frame, providing a strong, stable platform close to the stomach. On that platform is a universal joint that allows sideways rotation and up and down swing. The handle of the fishing rod is adapted to fit into the universal joint. (Another option is to attach the adapter arm to the handle of any fishing rod with wrap-around clamps.) The rod is held in the universal joint with a quarter-inch quick disconnect pin. Once there is a strike on the line, the rod is taken from the outrigger to the universal joint where the user can control it. The fish is attached to the line, to the rod, to the universal, to the chair, to the deck, with no strain on the user. The reel is operated using a specially designed partial glove arrangement attached to the reel handle. TITLE: The Fishing Rig.
