Casting for Recovery – To fish is to hope

Casting for Recovery is an international charity that provides retreats at no cost to women, whose lives have been profoundly affected by breast cancer, to gather in a beautiful, natural setting and learn to fly fish.

Casting for RecoveryThese retreats offer participants an opportunity to experience peace, solitude and the chance to “be in the moment” that fly fishing provides.

Casting for RecoveryThe retreats also incorporate a range of other services (massage, etc) to promote well-being. The 2.5 day weekend retreat is one of fun and support with the mission of empowerment and achievement to whatever level the retreat participants are capable of.learning to cast a fly rodIt was our honor, for the second year, to host a Casting for Recovery retreat in mid-April..
