What We Do

 

"Most of us think that going fishing is as easy as a walk down to a lake. . . . . . For over 56 million Americans with disabilities, it's just not that easy."

Fishing Has No Boundaries®, Inc. (FHNB) is a non-profit 501-C3 organization whose goal is to open up the great outdoors for people with disabilities through the world of fishing. FHNB has grown into a National Organization with 23 chapters in 11 states, enabling thousands of individuals with disabilities to participate fully in this spirit lifting, morale booster, trouble free recreational activity. Continue to look for additional announcements for new chapters in new states, opening up new dreams for persons with disabilities that might not otherwise experience what you or I might just take for granted.

We believe through education, training, and the use of adaptive angling equipment, everyone is able to share in a dream come true.

 

I am a little pencil in the hand of a writing God who is sending a love letter to the world.  ~Mother Teresa (Agnes Gonxha Bojarhiu)

Organization History

In 1986, a local Hayward fishing guide, Bobby Cammack, founded Fishing Has No Boundaries®, Inc. as the result of a broken leg. Bobby wanted to still be able to continue to fish, (a special passion of his) and enjoy the beautiful area lakes; but with a simple cast on his leg, fishing was not as easy anymore.

With years of research, planning, and perseverance, the first initial event was held in 1988 on the Chippewa Flowage in Hayward, WI for all persons with disabilities regardless of age, race, gender, and especially severity of disability. This new found opportunity gathered 75 people from seven different states.

By the year 2002, FHNB, Inc. has had over 8,000 participants at various events with double that amount in volunteers. In 2007, FHNB, Inc. increased its chapters to 23 events, in 11 different states, with many more in the initial planning stages for 2008 and beyond. FHNB, Inc. is proud of all of our many volunteers that have supported FHNB in every aspect deemed possible. FHNB, Inc. realizes over 1,875 participants with disabilities attending at least one FHNB Chapter event each year, with over 6,850 volunteers helping along the way.
