Fishing with Lawrence Euteneier on the ‘Blind Fishing Boat’
Ever wonder what it’s like to be alone in a boat without being able to see? Captain Lawrence Euteneier will entertain and educate you with stories of fishing
from the world’s first fishing boat for the blind.
Lawrence is a life-long and semi-professional fisherman who competes in fishing tournaments, organizes guided fishing adventures, advises the fishing industry
on accessibility and teaches people with vision loss to fish. Functionally blind since age 22, Lawrence has also invented the world’s first fishing boat
for the blind (www.blindfishingboat.com).
Learn about fishing techniques and gear that will have you catching more than your sighted friends. It’s those with experience using their sense
of touch who catch the most fish.
