Fishing Rod for Vision Impaired?

6 posts in this topic

Need some help guy's. Got a buddy who lost sight in one eye last fall and the vision in his so called "good eye" is about nill. He is trying to fish with his regular fishing equipment. He is having problems with the line getting wrapped around the eyelets of the rods and is wondering if they make a rod that the line goes through the center of to eliminate any snagging or tangling amongst the eyelets. He does a lot of his fishing in waders after dark (yeah I know that doesn't help with poor vision). Any thoughts or products out there would be greatly appreciated! Thanks.

You should check out the Innercast rods from one of the larger sporting goods retailers in the state.

It's called a Pro-caster, the line runs through the blank. No guides. They used to sell them in the major catalogs, but I couldn't find them now. I found them on a web-site but it would be against policy to link it for you. post your e-mail and I'll send it out for you

Cabella's sells a rod where the line runs through the rod. (Innercast I think) I bought one for my step Dad as a novelty a couple years ago. It's difficult to get the line through it even with the tool supplied, and I'm guessing would be almost impossible for someone with poor vision to re-rig easily.
I wouldn't suggest it.

Thanks for the fast reply's guy's. I'll check into them. It's hard to realize sometimes the things we take for granted until they are taken away from us or made nearly impossible to accomplish on a daily basis. Thanks again and I'll check later for any other reply's!! WWW
