RANGELEY – The Internet-based non-profit, Fly Fishing in Maine (FFIM), in conjunction with the Rangeley Region Guides and Sportsman’s Association (RRGSA), held its 6th annual Casting For Recovery fly fishing day camp this past weekend in Rangeley. Casting For Recovery (CFR) is a national non-profit support and educational program for women who have or have had breast cancer.
The day camp in Rangeley was attended by 13 CFR alumni who were treated to a day of fly fishing that included a private guide, a shore lunch and then a celebration dinner at the RRGSA hall. “There are not many days where as a breast cancer survivor you can feel good about saying, ‘I have breast cancer’, but this day with Fly Fishing in Maine and their guides is one of them”, said one of the 13 sports.
“Fly Fishing in Maine is committed not only to our natural resources but also to those who use them and this is just one small way for our community to give back”, says Ken Beaulieu of FFIM. “To say the day was successful is an understatement as both the guides and the participants left with stories and memories that will last forever.”
Also, many thank to Saddleback Mountain Resort, Morton-Furbish Realtors and Acadian Seaplanes for their support of the event.
