    Default Flies and/or Supplies for Project Healing Waters and Casting for Recovery (2018)

    It is time to start a new thread requesting flies for both 2018 Project Healing Waters and Casting for Recovery programs. This will be the sixth straight year we have donated flies and fly fishing materials to CFR and PHW. If you have any excess flies that you would like to donate or are willing to tie up six or maybe a dozen for those two great organizations, that would be wonderful. The flies don't need to be all the same pattern, but they do need to be unused flies. If you can't tie or don't tie flies, we also except fly boxes, nippers, forceps, tippet, leaders or other fly fishing related items that would be appropriate as raffle items for the respective retreats.

    The Project Healing Waters fly donation will be going to Bob Gartner who is the program lead at Ft Belvoir and was a tremendous help the last several years in getting our flies distributed throughout the country to those PHW's programs in need. Last year our flies were added to the flies generated in the two fly tying marathons that PHW's put on, for a total of 5,000 flies that were distributed around the country. We ended up donating just over 1,000 flies to PHW, if I remember correctly. It never ceases to amaze me what a few people can do to help those in need.

    We also are planning on donating flies to the Casper PHW program, as well as the Wyoming CFR program, the Michigan CFR program, and the Utah CFR program. If you have a favorite PHW or CFR program and want to donate your flies to them, let me know and I will make it happen. Last year we had 27 forum members who helped out with this project and we were able to donate 263 dozen flies and a ton of fly fishing related items to both of those great organizations. Thanks everyone that helped donate flies, materials and cash!!!!!

    Paying it forward the best I can...

    If your willing to donate flies or fly fishing related items to either Project Healing Waters or Casting for Recovery send me a PM and I will forward my address.

    My goal is to have all donated flies and fly fishing accessories to me by the end of April 2018, so I can get them mailed to the respective organizations.

    Don't miss out on a chance to win a NorVise:
    Frank Whiton has donated a NorVise. His intent is to get more people interesting in donating to PHW, so everyone that donates will have their name thrown in a hat and at the end to April we will have a drawing to see who will win the Norvise.

    Hey Larry,

    As always, my friend, you can count on me for another large array of "bugs." I've been adding "extras" for a few months now, and with Winter coming on, I plan on really kicking things into high gear. So, please add me to the list, my friend.

    And, thanks again for "riding herd" over us hook-wrapping cowboys!

    That time of the year again, where does the time go? Yes, I’m happy to tie for the cause. Got another beautiful card from Bob and I love to see all the trip reports on Facebook.

    In reading the reports and seeing the joy on people’s faces It always warms my heart. Hopefully my flies brought some good fish to hand as well.
