WE ARE FULL

 

 

For the fourth year I am again 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 12 assorted flies for a participant.

 

Please use 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 will get the same number in their fly box. I will contact J. Stockard to see if they will again provide the fly boxes. If not, I will provide them. 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. I will take the first 14 with "I'm In"  DUE DATE: SEPTEMBER 16, 2013

Will set a deadline when the list is full,  probably about the middle of September.

Sign me up, Bob. Thanks for doing this. I have lost loved ones to cancer, as I am sure many of us have.

"Peace is that brief glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading".--Thomas Jefferson

 

There is no such thing as a blank day for a fisherman. It will be saved for him by the white-throated weasel, who watches his fishing from a hole in the wall under which is lying a fish that refused all flies; or by the excitment of identifying insects; or by the apple-bloosom in a nearby orchard; and no one would call that day a blank on which he has seen a king-fisher." -- Arthur Ransome Rod and Line, 1929
