Think Pink

This month the hot fly might just be a PINK San Juan worm. Why? It’s breast cancer awareness month, so think pink!  

One of our favorite groups of gals is Casting for Recovery- Georgia. UO’s adopted sisters, Beverly and Lynn, run the program and lead a great annual flyfishing retreat at Smithgall Woods Park for women survivors. 


Most of the guests have never touched a fly rod before, but are treated to stream entomology and fly fishing lessons. Their free weekend retreat is topped off by a guided fishing trip on the Hooch at Nacoochee Bend.

Those special guests leave with lots of smiles, memories, new friends, and a new hobby. 

UO is proud to support CFR-GA through our volunteer fishing guides and a Sunday of fun on our trophy trout waters. We have even more fun than our new girl friends as we “catch” their whoops, high-fives, and huge smiles.

For more information on CFR-GA, its application process, or if you’d like to donate to the cause, check out their website.  The smiles of those new women flyfishers are truly priceless. Be a part of something great this month and…

Think pink!
