The explosion broke every bone in his body on the left side and he suffered numerous internal injuries. Daniels spent more than a month in a coma and finally woke up in a European hospital with limited use of the limbs on his left side. He was discharged from the U.S. Navy and came home to begin a long rehabilitation. This photo shows him fly fishing with the Casting Partner

The Casting Partner is a wearable device that allows an individual to independently cast and fly-fish with one working hand or arm. It assists by performing the functions of the line hand, allowing tying of knots, changing of flies, managing fly line, as well as fighting and landing a fish.

The Evergreen Hand is an accessory that converts a traditional vise into a one-handed fly-tying tool. Fly tying involves fine motor skills of the hands and fingers.  The device has helped some regain mobilty and dexterity by reinforcing traditional methods of physical therapy.  Other recipients enjoy the creative opportunity to craft fishing flies.

Our products are available free of charge to anyone who could benefit from our design.  We just need you to fill out an order form. This is possible by generous donations from individuals and corporate sponsors.  Please consider supporting us and our mission to help those recovering from physical injury.
