Casting for Recovery, a non-profit organization offering support and educational retreats for women with breast cancer is inviting all anglers to participate in an unforgettable fly-fishing experience. The Cast One For Hope event is a single-fly fishing event on Montana’s Bitterroot River. On October 4 and 5, registrants will gather in Hamilton, Montana with the goal of raising money for Casting for Recovery programs across the country.
Casting for Recovery Executive Director Whitney Milhoan says, “Anyone who has spent a day on the Bitterroot in the fall knows what kind healing properties that experience can provide. So, this event is a great opportunity to raise money to offer the same thing to women with breast cancer. Being surrounded by nature, the camaraderie, the connection with wildlife, the determination and concentration, plus the physical motion of casting a rod…these are all elements of fishing that can truly help women with breast cancer.
Each event participant will choose one fly to use for the day. If that fly becomes lost or unusable, the contestant is out of the running for “longest-lasting fly”, but can still continue fishing for fun and win additional prizes.
Professional guides are provided Wapiti Waters Fly Fishing, Grizzly Hackle, Fishs Eddy O, Regnegade Outfitters, Missoula Fishing Company, Jeff Lukas Guide Service, Blackfoot Outfitter, Two Dog Outfitters, Missoulian Angler and Osprey Outfitters.
Registration is open to the public at $1000 per person and includes a private kickoff party at a stunning riverside home, a full-day guided drift including lunch, an exclusive celebration dinner at the Stock Farm Club and awards.
