“This is fun, I could do this all day…..for the rest of my life!” – Cpl (ret) Mike Oreskovic, U.S. Army

PHWFF Programs use a wide-assortment of adaptive fly fishing equipment with those participants who are adjusting to their new abilities. One such item is the Franco Vivarelli reel featured in this short film. It’s a semi-automatic hand-crank reel system, meaning that with one-hand an angler can control the rod and the retrieval of line using its clutch system. It builds confidence and access for those participants who may be missing a limb or who are partially paralyzed.
