Posibly folk don't like to admit to being disabled and try to compete with able bodied folk. The forum is handy for those who wish to fish easily acsessable marks and ask for other members advice. Possibly it would be a good idea for those of us with local knowledge to put on marks that are wheelchair friendly or not too far to walk

I am partially disabled, spinal damage about 3 or 4 years ago has left me with no feeling below the knees and in 6 fingers. I thought my boat fishing days were over but the chap who owns the boat I go fishing in has been amazing. He knows that I can't pull my weight when it comes to launching and recovering the boat, but he has never complained at the extra work he himself has to put in. He is a true mate and I am very lucky to have him for a friend.

Yes, it is sometimes difficult, especially keeping my balance in lumpy sea conditions and I always come back with a new bruise or two, but it is really great to be able to carry on with the hobby that I enjoy so much.

I just wish our British weather would play a bit fairer so that we could get out more often!
