September 2010 – Losing your ability to do what you love can take away your quality of life. Armchair Anglers, a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide world-class fishing trips for the physically challenged on a fully accessible, stable catamaran boat, has just announced the launch of its New website – www.armchairanglers.org, in an effort to bring the healing that only time spent on the water can provide.
Executive Director and Founder, Jim Hargaden, who helped design this unique and customized fishing boat, did so in order to make this dream a reality.
“Our goal, to provide a safe and comfortable day of fishing and to provide education and smart catch & release techniques promoting conservation of our most valuable resources to this over-looked segment of the Disabled Community, is unique,” said Mr. Hargaden. “Our Fund Raising efforts have begun in earnest and we will be working on gathering sufficient funds for the construction and rigging of this exciting venture with your help.”
Daytime sword fishing, back country snook & tarpon, cobia & permit on wrecks or sailfish & dolphin offshore – Armchair Anglers will provide the best in sport fishing to Wounded Warriors and others with physical challenges who love to fish!
“We encourage you to join our efforts by visiting www.armchairanglers.org and supporting this worthy Non-Profit in anyway you can!” added Hargaden. “Your donation, no matter what level you choose, will serve to provide lasting memories for those with physical challenges.”
All donations are Tax Deductible. Details are available on their website and those who join their mailing list will receive a gift of fishing tackle.
