This special fly fishing retreat is one of the very best programs I’ve come across in Western North Carolina. If you have breast cancer, are in treatment, are in remission or recovery from breast cancer, or know anyone in your life in that situation, consider signing up for one of these free, weekend-long retreats at the stunningly beautiful Lake Logan Center in Haywood County.

From all I’ve heard and seen, from both participants and volunteers, is these retreats can help change your life in a very good way, considering all that breast cancer does to try to destroy your life.

Casting for Recovery Carolinas will hold two weekend retreats for breast cancer survivors at Lake Logan Center on May 23-25 and Oct. 24-26, 2014.

Retreats are completely free and are open to women of any age, in any stage of recovery from breast cancer. Participants will learn the basics of fly-fishing. No fly fishing or fishing experience is necessary. The retreat schedule includes a medical information group, support groups, fly fishing instruction on the water with a personal “river helper,” and lots of time to relax and enjoy the scenic setting.

Deadline to apply is March 14 for May retreat and Aug. 15 for October retreat.

Visit to fill out an application or call the national office at 888-553-3500 to request a paper application.
