This three day all inclusive retreat will be similar to a Casting for Recovery program but will in turn directly support women with breast cancer to attend a CfR program at no cost across the United States. The retreat includes fly fishing instruction, stream entomology, fly fishing knots, insects and fly selection with activities that will include yoga, mindfulness classes, fly tying and a half day guided trip by professional guides. Cost includes food, lodging, fishing gear and materials but does not include fishing license or gratuity.

Casting for Recovery® (CfR) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit founded in 1996 by two women — a breast reconstructive surgeon and a professional fly fisher.  CfR’s unique program combines breast cancer education and peer support with the therapeutic sport of fly fishing. The retreats offer opportunities for women to find inspiration, discover renewed energy for life and experience healing connections with other women and nature. CfR’s retreats are open to breast cancer survivors of all ages, in all stages of treatment and recovery, and are free to participants.
