Fly Fishing...can do some good!

Us fly fishermen can do some good.  Real. Impactful. Good.

We band together to make tremendous on great causes out there.  Pebble Mine.  CCA. Trout Unlimited.

And now, Casting for a Cure

Kirk from the Unaccomplished Angler and author of the Olive the Little Woolly Bugger childrens book series has started an online auction to benefit Casting for a Cure....

What's Casting for a Cure...

(from Kirk's blog)

Casting 4 A Cure is a tremendous organization comprised of folks who love kids and fly fishing. The passion for one benefits the love for the other as fly fishing serves as a vehicle to raise much-needed funding for the International Rett Syndrome Foundation.

Rett Syndrome is a cruel neuro-developmental disorder which begins to show its affects in infancy or early childhood. It is seen almost exclusively in females, although it can occur rarely in boys.  The disorder severely disrupts gross and fine motor skills as well as robbing the girls of their ability to speak and communicate with the outside world.  Seizures and breathing problems can also be prevailing symptoms. It affects every aspect of a family’s life, as our girls are dependent upon us for almost everything, from helping feed them to helping them get around, bathing, and most other daily tasks that most of us take for granted.

Currently there is a very special Ebay auction taking place over the next 10 days. View the auction HERE

All proceeds will go directly to Casting 4 a Cure

The package includes some seriously kick butt stuff...I suggest you follow the link to go find out it's contents.
