About

A local fellow who is legally blind (can see a bit so don't worry-sets his own tackle/hooks) is looking for a fishing buddy to get him out on the water or casting from shore if you prefer. He also likes to go walking in his neighborhood too and generally enjoys being outdoors. He fishes both salt and fresh water - bass and trout - and has his own gear. What he doesn't have is a ride and/or a boat to get him there.
If that doesn't sound good enough for you, he also likes basketball and power tools and small carpentry jobs!
