The mission of Casting for Recovery is to enhance the quality of life of women, who are recovering from breast cancer. We do this through the sport of fly fishing within a supportive environment at week-end retreats.
The retreats offer opportunities for women to find inspiration, discover renewed energy for life and experience healing connections with other women and nature.
Casting for Recovery retreats are open to women of all ages, in all stages of recovery and are free to participants.

Fly fishing is a lovely new sport to us all ….we had a fabulous experience being spoiled and nurtured ….it was a lovely healing experience …. wish you all enormous and ever lengthening fish records ….”
