|Casting For Recovery, founded in 1996, is a national non-profit support and educational program
for women who have or have had breast cancer. CFR provides an opportunity for women whose lives have been
profoundly affected by the disease to gather in a beautiful, natural setting and learn fly-fishing, "a sport for life."
Just as importantly, they offer an opportunity to meet new friends and have fun.
CFR offers free retreats throughout the country, incorporating counseling, educational services and the sport of
fly-fishing to promote mental and physical healing. Fly fishing techniques provide a gentle exercise for joint and
soft tissue mobility. The dynamics of fly fishing provide a healing connection to the natural world, relieving
everyday stress and promoting a sense of calm. These retreats also offer a forum for women with similar
experiences to meet, learn a new skill and gain a respite from their everyday concerns. Any woman who has
experienced breast cancer is eligible to attend a retreat (with medical clearance from their physicians).
Temple Fork Outfitters has created two unique fly rods built specifically to benefit "Casting for Recovery"; an
8'6" 5 weight and a 9' 8 weight. CFR rods are built on translucent purple blanks with pink lettering inscribed with
the words "Supporting Casting For Recovery & Hope" and will include a distinctive pink rod sock. A $25
contribution will be made to Casting For recovery for every CFR rod that is purchased through an authorized
Stop by and see these great rods and help us make a difference. These are about the best gift you could give
