Zack’s mother describes her son’s first fishing trip with his dad:
I just thought you’d like to see a couple of pictures of my blind son, Zack, fishing and the first ever fish he has caught.
He managed to catch four carp in total.
To begin with, his dad Lee got him to sit next to his rod and have the line in his fingers so that when a fish took his bait he could feel the line through his fingers.
Then Lee got him to keep his hand on the top of the rod and feel the vibrations through his hand.
He put the bait on the hook (which Lee held), and cast out himself. Lee struck into the fish for him but Zack reeled them in on his own.
He loved being able to fish with me and we are so proud of what he accomplished.
