Fly Fishing Device
The Casting Partner is a wearable device that allows an individual to independently cast and fly-fish with one working hand or arm. It assits in 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.
Fly Tying Device
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.
