Fly Fishing with Cancer

There is an organization that provides expense paid fishing outing for men with cancer.
I attended a recent excursion to Boiling Springs PA this June.
The name of the organization is called Reel Recovery (
I’m mentioning this, if next year you know a person (Man) with cancer that might enjoy this type of outing next year, you might want to let them know.  This year the outing was not  full this year and could have used a few more attendees.
The three day outing was at a resort near Carlisle, PA (Allenberry Resorts).
The days consist of 50% discussion of cancer and a personal guided fly fishing excursion (two days of fishing).
The guides were provided by the local Trout Unlimited Chapter and were very patient and knowledgeable.
Thanks for your time.

    Thanks Bill. This is the first I've heard of the organization. Something I believe I may want to get involved with. Thanks again for the link.
