Fly fishing is a unique way to provide women of all ages and stages of treatment or recovery with emotional support with gentle physical therapy while connecting with nature.

There are two connected opportunities for to provide support in the next few weeks. During the week of October 15-21, no matter where you live or your experience level, you can support Casting for Recovery in their one-of-a-kind ‘Catch Photo Release’ tournament. A $50 dollar ticket will gain you entry into the tournament to help raise funds for the organization’s mission. Simply buy a ticket and use that ticket as a free pass to get out and catch some fish, snap a photo, and upload it for your chance to win a YETI package worth $425 in each category!
