What's the deadline, Larry? Are there specific patterns they request, and what's the minimum to donate (looks like a dozen)?

Happy to do it Larry. People have been kind to me and given me tying and fishing materials and this is a way to pay it forward. I just hope they catch something on my humble flies.

You have tied up many flies for two awesome programs, so kudos to you.

No minimum; a 'Hand up, a hand out?' Not in the least. You only have to 'be there' as these Ladies do their thing and watch. Magic, pure Magic.

Me thinks, me watched. Me in tears.

All good things.

Dean: Like Fred stated, no minimum and we still have lots of time, the Wyoming CFR retreat isn't until July 26-28, but I would like to get the flies to them in March or so, but that isn't a hard and fast deither. If you would like to contribute I'm sure the gals at CFR would appreciate anything you want to tie, especially flies that fish well in the Rockies. Same goes for anyone else on the forum that has the time to tie up a few flies......we definitely would love to have more flies come from forum members.

Fred: Amen to that! This is an outstanding program helping gals that are recovering from cancer, CFR offers no cost retreats to introduce the gals to fly fishing and hopefully provide an emotional boost in a time of need.
If you have ever had a family member go through cancer treatments/recovery you know what I'm talking about.

This afternoon I received the flies that Brian (Liphookedau from Australia) has generously donated to the gals at CFR. His beautiful wets and nymphs filled a whole fly box and then some, took some squeezing to get them all in. Thanks Brian for the awesome flies, the gals at CFR are going to be very impressed!

If anyone else wants to donate a few flies to CFR, just let me know, there is still plenty of time.
