For the fifth 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 flies for a participant, each with an assortment of 12 flies. 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 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 send you a copy for tax purposes. Due Date August 30.

 

Thank You, We Are Full

When do you need them done .

I am thinking about August 30, that is six weeks.  There are several retreats in September that could use the flies
