For this, the 11th year, I am looking for 14 fly tyers to tie enough flies for a 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 some combination of 12 flies so that each participant gets 12 flies in their fly box.  In the past many of you have sent extras which I have put in a separate fly box to be auctioned off by CfR.  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.

Fly tyers sure do have a way at making things complicated

Sure

But remind me on facebook about two weeks out. Please.


Give a man a fish and you'll feed him for the day; Teach a man to tie flies and he'll pick up all the roadkill.

I'll see what I can do I haven't been tying as much lately but I'll try to get at least a dozen extra buggers or something done.

Thanks vicente, but I need an assortment,  see the top post. like 3 buggers, 3 nymphs, 3 terrestrials and 3 attractors.  If you just want to tie some buggers for the extras box that is fine too, just let me know which you are doing.

I'm in. Casting Carolinas, a local woman's cancer recovery group here in NC/SC requires all flies to be barbless. Is this a requirement for CfR?
