I have a friend who has ALS and he can't grip a pole with his left hand.  Is there any kind of brace or device to help with this problem.  He really loves fishing and taking his grandkids out and this is really bothering him.

Tim,

I hope these photos went through, I am lousy with this computer stuff.  I founded and directed a nonprofit organization, Serve Outdoors, in 2008.  These devices got a lot of use by people with disabilities.  Good luck!
