Cast­ing For Re­cov­ery

Char­ity Cast­ing For Re­cov­ery (CFR) pro­vides a 2.5-day re­treat for those af­fected by breast can­cer, where they can re­lax in a beau­ti­ful nat­u­ral set­ting and learn how to fly-fish.

The 2016 event was held at the Owen River Lodge from April 22-24, with ded­i­cated re­treat guides and in­struc­tors Peter Carty and John Boyle pro­vid­ing tu­ition and ad­vice.

The event, now in its fifth year, was ex­tremely well re­ceived, and fea­tured pam­per­ing ses­sions as well as the fly-fish­ing and fly-ty­ing ses­sions. Ten women from around the South Is­land took part and, de­spite a lack of pre­vi­ous fly-fish­ing ex­pe­ri­ence, fish were caught and re­leased, a tes­ta­ment to their de­ter­mi­na­tion and the skills of the vol­un­teer in­struc­tors.
