Casting for Recovery: Women with breast cancer learn to fly fish

A parade of men, pink boas decorating their trucks, made their way down the narrow road toward the Flying B Ranch the morning of Sunday, July 19. These net-wielding, pole carrying, vest-clad men were met with whoops, hollers and cheering. Fourteen women were paired with these river helpers – and some were even greeted with a good-natured “dance dollar” poked in the pocket of their fishing guests as the duos met for the first time. They soon made their way to the pond on the ranch and began Casting for Recovery.
