Casting For Recovery Casting for Recovery is a national non-profit support and educational program for women who have or have had breast cancer. We provide an opportunity for women whose lives have been profoundly affected by the disease to gather in a beautiful, natural setting and learn fly-fishing, "a sport for life." Just as importantly, we offer an opportunity to meet new friends and have fun. Our weekend retreats incorporate counseling, educational services and the sport of fly-fishing to promote mental and physical healing. Founded in 1996, Casting for Recovery has been offering free retreats across the country. We rely on local volunteers and organizations to support our community based retreats.
Michigan Fly Fishing
The MFFC is a 350 member club dedicated to fly fishing
and conservation activities. We are an independent club
(not a TU or FFF chapter), and believed to be one of the
largest - if not the largest - independent fly fishing
club in the country. The MFFC also hosts the Midwest Fly
Fishing Expo each year in the Detroit area. The Expo is
the oldest, fly-fishing-only show in the U.S. (going on
our 29th year).
Reeling & Healing Midwest champions fly
fishing retreats for women battling and surviving all
cancers. Founded in 1997, we provide participants with a
one-of-a-kind experience, on and off the river, which
renews their spirit and hope through the elements of fly
fishing, nature, peer coaching, positive camaraderie and
a support network. Our 2-1/2 day retreat programs are
staffed by volunteers, counselors, medical personnel and
facilitators. No experience or equipment is necessary.
Lodging and meals are provided. Beyond the initial
retreat and fishing experience, Reeling & Healing
Midwest provides reunion retreats and opportunities to
continue fly fishing education, the support network and
promotion of positive cancer survivorship.
