Question Blind Flyfisher?

Anyone know (or know of) any blind fly fishers? I'm working on a project right now and it dawned on me that a blind fly fisher would be great to talk to. PMs appreciated.

Thanks.

I don't know anyone in particular, but I know that Archery Pond in Bear Brook State Park has a handicapped ramp, and I've heard that there are a few blind fishers there. May want to reach out to them.

Gtown,
I would email Bob out in Michigan. He has a website dedicated to Handicapped anglers fishing for trout.
He's a great guy to have a discussion with and he would be the one best suited to put you in touch with a blind angler.
