Default Middle Tennessee CFR

As most of you might of read Mcnerney (A.K.A. Larry) post about “Casting For Recovery” (CFR), Middle Tennessee is holding their CFR retreat May 3-5, 2013 in Normandy TN. http://castingforrecovery.org/wordpr...r-tennessee-2/

CFR is a healing retreat for cancer survivors, The ladies are invited to go fly fishing one weekend to get away from stresses due to medical treatment, home, or workplace also they get to experience something new and challenging while enjoying beautiful surroundings. Great program!!

I thought I would put it out there if any board member is interested in donating some flies for the CFR retreat the ladies would be ecstatic to receive them, each lady will receive a fly box with donated flies from all over the country. You can send me a PM if interested and I will forward my address for your fly donation, I will make sure the Middle TN. CFR organizer get them in time for their retreat.

Just let me know

Thanks
Keven

Keven: Count me in, I will send you some flies to donate to the Tennessee CFR program. I'll also throw in some pink flies for the gals hats, they should get a kick out of that!

Keven: I forgot to ask what type of flies will work in the TN area? I've never fished there, could you give me some generic ideas?

Kevin: Thanks, I'll get started. The pink foam and thread finally came in so I'm also going to tie up some pink hoppers (more of a novelty thing for the CFR gals).

Anyone else that wants to tie up a few flies for the Tennessee CFR program please feel free to jump in!

Larry

Keven: Do you happen to know how many gals participate in a TN CFR Retreat? The WY CFR program had 14 participants last year. I'm tying up some pink hoppers for both the WY and TN programs and want to make sure I have enough for each gal. I'm thinking 16 should cover it for each program, but don't want to be short, so far I have 21 completed.
Here is how they are turning out:

So is this coldwater or warmwater fishing? The fly selection seems to be coldwater.
