2014 retreat season starts this weekend
This Saturday, April 5, 2014 kicks off the beginning of the 2014 retreat season. Casting for Recovery is excited and thankful to begin another year of helping women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer connect with others and learn the therapeutic sport of fly fishing. This will be the best year yet thanks to the amazing volunteers, staff, supporters and most of all the participants! Watch out 2014, CfR is ready to show you a great time and catch some big fish!
To date CfR has helped more than 6,500 women, if you would like to help make that number grow please visit here to donate.
CfR skiff boat roaming the Bahamas
BlackFly Lodge, a Bahamas based fly fishing operation has commissioned a pink skiff to raise awareness of breast cancer and CfR. This new boat will be used for guided fly fishing trips and will feature the Casting for Recovery logo.
Clint Kemp, managing partner of BlackFly Lodge, called on East Cape Skiffs to build the custom boat as a tribute to his aunt, Rochelle McCabe, who has just completed her breast cancer treatments in Orlando. The boat will serve as a constant reminder of the struggle endured by many and a source of hope that one day a cure for breast cancer will be discovered. BlackFly Lodge also donated a fishing trip that will be auctioned at CfR’s annual Cast One for Hope national fundraiser in Montana in October.

Just as an added highlight, I was privileged enough to participate in a weekend with Casting for Recovery and it was awesome. IT is such a great weekend being with others that are or have gone through the same things I had and also the chance to step out of my comfort zone and learn a new skill. Who knew I would like fly fishing? It was a great support system that grew from the first moment we met each other. It does make it a great day! Go online and l
