Reel Recovery is once again requesting an effort from our TFF fly tiers to solicit flies for their upcoming retreats.
As you all know, Covid-19 has put our retreats in “suspense” for this year, at least until further notice.
However we continue to hope and plan for retreats later this year.
In addition to Covid impact our ability to serve men with cancer, we are facing and additional challenge in that we must now supply ALL OUR OWN FLIES for both the retreat, and the gift boxes. ( in the past Reel Recovery has shipped us some flies)
So we are launching a 2021 Fly drive!
Of course, we have flies in our inventory but many are inappropriate for the freshwater ponds and species we target.
Unfortunately the need for retreat flies never ends! Here’s the flies that we typically need:
• Squirmy wormy • Mop fly • San Juan worm
• Sam’s one bug • Yellow spiders • Black spiders
• Wooly buggers olive • Wooly buggers black • Wooly worms
• Clouser minnow • Small bluegill poppers • Bead head nymphs
Any flies that you have had success with in targeting largemouth bass and pan fish in small ponds!
Steve Tomlinson, Drew Cox, Steve Edwards, or Dave Steffek will accept the donations thru arrangements at the upcoming 2021 monthly meetings of the Texas Fly Fishers.
Given the Pandemic restrictions, these men will be making arrangements for accepting the donations.
Thank you for your continued support in helping these brave gentlemen with their battle to defeat cancer!!
