Casting for Recovery (Round Two)

Project: Casting for Recovery - Gorge Fly Shop
Project: Casting for Recovery

August marks Round Two in our efforts to continue support for Casting for Recovery. CFR as it's known is a non-profit organization that takes groups of Women who have breast cancer on weekend fly fishing trips to help in the recovery process. This allows them time on the water in a relaxing, educational and fun atmosphere with other Women who have experienced some of the same hardships, both physically and mentally. The Gorge Fly Shop supports CFR's efforts and not only endorses it but wishes to promote the sport of fly fishing for All Women and young patrons to join the sport, by doing so we hope to highlight our great love for fishing during the month of August. During this time expect to see more Facebook posts with more female fly fishing photos, a video or two and the occasional contest. This year we have already given away a Pink Rogue 2 Bauer Reel and a set of 12 Pink Angel Girl Flies. We hope to bring back the Angel Girl Fly in some fashion, stay tuned for details. In addition once we reach 2,000 Facebook Likes we will giveaway a pair of Simms Waders to a lucky Gorge Fly Shop Facebook Fan.

Help us reach 2,000 Facebook Page likes and a lucky fan will win a pair of Simms Headwater Women's Waders. Like us on Facebook

Abel Reel
The Abel Super Series 5N Large Arbor fly reel will feature the following:
  • Custom CFR purple with matching CFR pink handle, drag knob, and foot.
  • "To Fish is to Hope" custom engraved drag knob.
  • CFR logo and pink ribbon fish on the spool.
The reel with custom options would normally retail for $875, however the Casting for Recovery version is $700 of which $100 is tax deductible.  
 The CFR edition Abel reel is built on an as per order basis. We do not stock the reel and Abel does not build them until an order is in place for one. It should be safe to assume that a finished reel could be in your hands in approximately 30 days from time of order. International orders would take longer of course due to the extra shipping time and customs declarations.

Simms Women's Headwater Waders
Designeded and cut for women that offers GORE-TEX® technology. And the patented front/back leg seam design and hourglass stockingfoot offer the most comfortable fit.

Join us on Facebook, when we reach 2,00 Gorge Fly Shop Facebook Fans will pick one random Winner to be awarded a pair of Simms Women's Headwater Waders, size of their choosing.
