I don’t believe I have shared this on the TKF board but early last year I was diagnosed with Prostate cancer and elected to have surgery to remove it. Recently I have celebrated being cancer free for one year. Fortunately I caught it early, found a great surgeon and have made a full recovery with virtually no lasting side effects. In the process I attended a Reel Recovery weekend with about another dozen men who were also at some point in their battle with many different forms of cancer. This weekend was amazing and I believe life changing for some in our group. I know it made me realize that even though I had been diagnosed with cancer I was so fortunate as some of these men had been put through the ringer and still didn’t know what their outcome would be.
Anyway they need our help with flies for their retreat weekends, below is a request I copied from an email I received.
Are you a Fly Tyer or just have way too many? Every Season, Reel Recovery uses about 10,000 flies. Half go into Gift Boxes given to each participant, half go into their fishing vests for use during Retreats. That's a lot of flies, and we're in need of several thousand to finish 2019. Here's a list of desired patterns, https://files.constantcontact.com/06fa7 ... 67fd6b.pdf
but we really will accept any unused fresh-water patterns. Thanks for helping out!
