For the ninth year I am looking for 14 fly tyers to tie enough flies for one Casting for Recovery retreat. http://castingforrecovery.org/home  Tyers will put together a box of flies for a participant, each with an assortment of 12 flies. As these are the fly patterns requested by Casting for Recovery Please use ONLY the following patterns for your box:  Bead-head Nymphs (sizes 10, 12); Attractor Dry Flies (sizes 8-12); Terrestrials (sizes 10, 12); Wooly Buggers (lightly weighted, sizes 6, 8); Parachute Adams (sizes 10, 12).  Please tie only 12 flies so that each participant gets the same amount in their fly box.  I have contacted J. Stockard and they will again provide the fly boxes.  So send your flies in an Altoids or similar box that you do not want returned.  When I have 14 confirmed tyers I will send a PM with my mailing address.  As in the past, when I receive a confirmation from CFR I will post a copy for tax purposes.  Due Date will be July 31, 2017

Any combination of twelve of the listed patterns is perfect.

Count me in for Woolly Buggers.

Please reread the first paragraph.  I need a combination of twelve flies not twelve of one fly.

I'm in. Love to tie parachute Adams, especially in bigger sizes like that. I'll do three of everything except the Buggers. Hate them.
