Rivers of Recovery helps combat war veterans find peace and healing through a 4 day retreat that focuses on confidence building and outdoor activities that of course include fly fishing. Through the help of many generous donors, these retreats are of no cost to the veterans. We are working hard with ROR to bring a retreat here to Montana.
Casting for Recovery takes women with breast cancer through a special program that combines breast cancer education and peer support with the therapeutic sport of fly fishing. Our beautiful Mom got to be a participant in the 2013 CFR retreat in Glacier Park in Montana. She almost canceled because she was so nervous to go on the retreat. She did end up going and came back greatly impacted, telling us "words just can't describe what an amazing weekend it was." Needless to say, CFR is near and dear to our heart.

Damsel is proud to be a part of bring the first Mayfly Project here to Montana.
