Casting for Recovery Fundraiser: Southern Oregon Retreat at the Big K Ranch in Elkton, Oregon

From Kathy McCartney, on behalf of the Damselflies, supporting Casting for Recovery

There are 2 ways you can support this great cause:

Donate Flies
You can drop your flies off at the Caddis Fly. The more flies in this box, the more raffle tickets we sell, the larger the donation amount to send 14 Oregon Women to the Southern Oregon 2 1/2 day Casting for Recovery Retreat! This was a huge success a few years ago and hopefully, you guys and gals are still willing to donate as generously as you did then. Thank you!!!!

Buy Tickets!
The second way to help the retreat is to buy raffle tickets for a chance to win the fly-filled box tied by the best fly fishers and tiers in the business and sport. The raffle tickets are 2 part tickets and your name, address and phone number (add email address please) part will go into the raffle drawing. You can purchase tickets for $5 each or 5 for $20.00. Cash or checks accepted at the Cascade Family Flyfisher’s meetings that are scheduled for their regular meetings, which is the last Wednesday of each month (February 26th this month at Mac’s Restaurant on Willamette Street) Doors open at 6:15 PM so you can buy tickets before the great meeting scheduled at 7:00 PM, Fly Fishing for Sea Run Cutthroat by Chester Allen. Make sure to list all: name, address, phone number and email address on your ticket so I can contact you when you win! If paying by check, make your check out to Casting for Recovery, Southern Oregon Retreat. It is so easy!

The drawing will be held at the Cascade Family Flyfishers May meeting (May 28, 2014) at Mac’s Restaurant on Willamette St in Eugene. I will be contacting the winner by email and phone on May 29, 2014 if he or she is not present at the May Cascade Family Flyfishers meeting. I will also be posting the winner’s name and picture, if possible, on this website. Thank you, Chris and the crew at the Caddis Fly for allowing us to post the drawing information on the blog.

The box is 12″ x 18″ by 3″ and I have custom designed and hand-etched an “Adams” on the glass top. It is one of my originals. It is a hinged wooden box finished in a pecan stain with the inside left unfinished. There are 4 lift-out trays on the top each with 9 smaller compartments perfect for trout flies and 20 larger compartment in the bottom section perfect for larger saltwater, steelhead or streamer flies. This would make a wonderful gift for any fly fisher including yourself!

Thank you for donating to Casting for Recovery, Southern Oregon Retreat!

Please email me if you have any questions. Thanks! Kathy, mccartney0583@comcast.net

    I went into the Caddis Fly Friday as I had left a small wooden box just in case someone wanted to donate a fly or two to Casting for Recovery. The box was empty. Clay called me Saturday afternoon and said that the box was overflowing with flies.
    All of you guys (women included) are the BEST! I was so impressed with the quality and quantity of flies all I can say is THANK YOU SO MUCH – each and everyone of you that donated flies to the Casting for Recovery box . I recognize some of the tier’s styles and I know Tony was there. Thanks. That was so nice of all of you and the gals at the next CFR Retreat thank you well .
