Looking to start a fishing class for high school special needs students. Old rods and reels would be greatly appreciated. We are almost there with gear. Thanks to everyone. For those who can volunteer their time, our trips are going to start hopefully in 2 weeks. We will be going every other Thursday for now from around 9:30 to 11:30 or so. The lake is close to Belleview and Broadway (Denver Metro). I am planning a big trip before the end of school, maybe Evergreen. Thanks again for all the responses and donations.

Re: Donations?

It will have to be local ponds and lakes since we will RTDing it. Looking for 6 combos, closed-faced, nothing fancy. Will keep updated as far as quantity received. Took the kids out two years ago with equipment we borrowed, they had a blast, and so did I.

Re: Donations?

It's not about the brand for these kids, just basic fishing. They were excited with the loot I brought in today, but it's going to take some maintenance to get the reels in shape. I just want to say a big thanks to all who have offered, you won't know what it means to them until you see the pictures.

If you come up short...don't look like that's gonna happen tho, I'd be glad to help.

Re: Donations?

Thanks again for all the interest and gear I have gotten for my project. These kids are more capable than most people give them credit for. All it takes is patience and modification. Thanks to your generosity, they will have the opportunity to experience what most people don't take the time to. Still could use some closed faced reels, or even cane poles. Hoping to start the middle of March, so I will be in touch with those who volunteered their time. I will take you up on the help. It has been great meeting the members that I have so far.

If you still need stuff for the kids let me know. I might be able to get BPS to donate some poles and gear. Give me a call!

fishnbuddy, I also collect used gear and donate it to the kids at Camp Make a Dream up in Montana! I just checked through my donations and I have 5 closed face combos in working order, just need cleaned up and new line put on...they are yours for your cause if you still need them. Also I will donate enough baitholder hooks to keep you going for a while! Just PM me with info on how to contact you to get them to you!!! :)
