Making A Difference...Healing Waters & Reel Recovery



Boulder Flycasters is working through one of its long term members, Ron Donahue, to assemble flies for use by two very worthy organizations.  Project Healing Waters who sponsors outings for military personnel and veterans.  Their program is specifically  designed to help our American heroes get back on their feet physically and/or emotionally.  Reel Recovery that helps men with all forms of cancer share their stories, learn how to fly fish, form lasting friendships, and gain renewed hope as they confront the challenges of cancer.

"We started out a month ago with Project Healing water and the response was very strong.   As such, we decided that it would be appropriate to extend the coverage to another group, Reel Recovery, that the BFC has helped in the past....Ron Donahue"

Ron is doing his level best to match every 6 flies or more flies tied by the participants.  If you are interested in helping Project Healing Waters click here or Reel Recovery click here.  If you want to do something for both just signify this in the comment section.  The value of this kind of gift is immeasurable.

IF YOU DON'T TIE FLIES AND WOULD STILL LIKE TO PARTICIPATE, WE CAN SECURE A SELECTION OF 1/2 OR 1 DOZEN PATTERNS FROM A COMMERCIAL SOURCE AT COST.  SIMPLY FILL OUT THE SAME FORM AND DESIGNATE THIS INTENTION IN THE COMMENT SECTION.  YOU WILL RECEIVE A CREDIT CARD BILLING VIA EMAIL FROM THE BFC.

  1. I just made a post on North American Fly Fishing Forums directing people to project healing waters.
    Probably get a few donations from the fly-tiers there. I offered a dozen nymphs or terrestrials.
    Keep up the good work!
