OUR MAJOR SPONSORS
LOOP Tackle NZ & Australia donated 15 rods, reels and lines to the ACT Fly Fishers Club to enable it to start the CfR program in 2016.
This allowed the first retreat to be held straightaway, without the delay of having to raise funds to purchase this essential equipment, which is still in use today.
The Rainbow Springs Fly Fishing School has provided the venue for the the real fishing session on the Sunday of the weekend since the first retreat in 2016.
It provides a beautiful setting for catching fish in the stocked dams on the property
The NSW Recreational Fishing Trust has provided a substantial grant each year since 2020, which basically covers the costs of running a retreat.
The Trust considers that the CfR program contributes to the promotion of fishing in general as well as to the specific target group of the program.
The ACT Government has supported Casting for Recovery since its first retreat by providing a free Government bus and driver for the weekend.
This allows participants to be transported in comfort between the hotel and the fishing venues, giving an added opportunity to socialise during the journey.
