For the eighth 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 the 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 August 19.
 
WE ARE FULL!  Thank you all for signing up.​

I would join, but I have no experience with those kind of flies. However I think that it's really awesome that you are doing this and I really hope this swap fills up! !!

Still hunting for my first tarpon on fly! 


Why are windknots in love with me?


Can't wait for that diy trip to Acklins!!

2 each) Attractor Dry Flies (sizes 8-12)

2 each) Terrestrials (sizes 10, 12)

2 each) Wooly Buggers (lightly weighted, sizes 6, 8)
