I tied up some pink beetles and buggers for the gals attending the Utah Casting for Recovery retreat, these will be used to pin in their CFR hats.

Very nice Larry! My employer allows us a volunteer day and one of the foundations supported is CFR. After I get a little more time in at work I plan on taking a day to help out somehow, even if it's just to tie up something pink and purple. What a great idea! I was poking around their website and they were looking for volunteer tiers but the idea of sitting down tying a bunch of trout stuff sounds horrible to me. Now nice pretty salty streamers on the other hand is right up my alley. Off to the store to get some purple crystal flash!
