Fishing Accessory Resources

 

Access Recreation

This is one of the best resources I was able to find. It is called Access Recreation. It is located at: http://www.accesstr.com  . The main fishing page is located at: http://www.accesstr.com/fishing.cfm 

The Strikefighter Products which look very interesting are located at: http://www.accesstr.com/fishing3.cfm 

The Strikefighter rod holder is fantastic for one-handed fishing. Using standard fishing gear the Strikefighter takes the main work of pumping your rod from your arms to your legs and hips.

This link is from a site done by a disabled fisherman, and it has some very good ideas that may interest you - http://www.geocities.com/scosmo451/equipment.htm 

PVA National Bass Trail Information
