Casting for Recovery annual retreat

This year's Casting for Recovery retreat is being held at the Red River Camps in the Deboullie township.  Program Coordinator Bonnie Holding has been a registered Master Maine Guide of trout and salmon fishing for 25 years and has been organizing the annual Casting for Recovery retreat in Maine for 13 years.

Often, the adventure of spending a weekend deep in the Maine woods is one of the most exciting aspects to many of the participants, but whether participants come for the fly fishing or for the adventure, one thing is certain: they all had the opportunity to enjoy themselves, their fellow participants, the retreat staff, the beauty of the Maine outdoors, and the opportunity to heal both physically and emotionally.  The fly-casting motion does so much more than bring that fly to your fish; it also helps with soft tissue recovery.  It’s definitely all about fishing and not at all about the fishing!
