The World Fishing Network recently caught up with Sisters on the Fly as they set up camp in Hamilton MT, at the foot of the Bitterroot Mountains, to support Casting for Recovery with a trailer showcase and day of casting.
The World Fishing Network series, the World Fishing Journal, chronicles the most iconic stories in the fishing world and their profile of Sisters on the Fly is a testament to the impact the group has made for women participating in the sport.
Casting for Recovery is a non-profit organization offering support and educational retreats for women with breast cancer. Sisters on the Fly is a long time supporter of the group, seeing that the mission of each is to empower women through the healing power of nature. As a fourth year CfR National Sponsor, the Sisters on the Fly raised $59,917 for CfR. To date, the SOTF has raised a total of $213,000 for Casting for Recovery, making them one of CfR’s largest national sponsors.
The World Fishing Network took the opportunity to capture the partnership at the CfR signature annual fundraiser, Cast One for Hope, a well-attended SOTF Vintage Trailer Tour and fishing event.
To kick off SOTF’s fifth year as a National Sponsor in 2016, Casting for Recovery is supporting a Membership Drive for Sisters on the Fly. The first 30 women to join SOTF will receive a special Casting for Recovery gift.
“We couldn’t be happier about our partnership with the Sisters on the Fly,” says CfR executive director Whitney Milhoan. “This organization of women has so much passion and energy, and our missions are strongly aligned. We are so grateful for the generous support of their members.
