"The mission of Casting for Recovery is to enhance the quality of life of women with breast cancer through a unique program that 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. Casting for Recovery’s retreats are open to breast cancer survivors of all ages, in all stages of treatment and recovery, and are free to participants." - From the Casting For Recovery website.The Music City Fly Girls really know how to do the Casting for Recovery Retreat. The event runs flawlessly year after year. My contribution is small and only consists of getting 14 guides and a few alternates together to guide the ladies. Each year there is a waiting list for guides who want a chance to be a part of the program. So it makes my work, well, pretty easy.
See the guides met up on Sunday morning down by the river. The Fly Girls had breakfast waiting, then we had a quick meeting to make sure everyone knew who their angler was for the day. It wasn't long before the anglers arrived and then the fishing began. Below are just some of the pictures that were taken over the course of the day.
Thanks to the guides for making it an awesome day for all the anglers. Thanks to Susan and the Music City Fly Girls for letting me a part of this event. It is truly one of my best days on the river each year.
