Mission Statement

Our mission is to design, produce and deliver at no cost, unique and adaptive devices for individuals with limitations to participate in the sport of fly tying and fishing.

Description

Olympic Peninsula Fishing Innovations (OPFI) is a small 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that designs and produces unique and adaptive devices that allow individuals with physical limitations to participate in fly-fishing and fly-tying. After meeting individuals who were unable to enjoy these activities due to a lost limb, trauma, or brain injury that impaired the function of their arm or hand, OPFI was formed and the Evergreen Hand and Casting Partner products were developed.

OPFI hopes these products can bring independence, peace, and a little fun to those facing a challenging recovery. We believe fly-fishing and fly-tying are relaxing activities that hold recreational and therapeutic value and can help someone battling PTSD, depression, and hopelessness by healing the mind, body, and spirit.

Every day individuals around the country start therapy after a stroke, accident, breast cancer recovery, or work-related injury affects their ability to function. We hope our products bring independence, peace and a little fun to those facing a challenging a recovery. Those individuals want to hear want they can do instead of what they can’t.
