Improve your fly-casting technique at a clinic April 25 benefiting breast-cancer survivors.
The clinic, hosted by Northwest Casting for Recovery, part of a national nonprofit organization, is 9 a.m. at Tolt-McDonald Park in Carnation.
Nationally certified volunteer fly-casting instructors will provide tips on fly casting, control and presentation, and spey casting, plus an introduction to double haul.
Fly-fishers can attend one morning or afternoon session for $50, or both for $75. Private two-hour lessons are also available from $100 to $125. Space is limited. Details: 425-868-7593 or e-mail Marilyn Vitale at email@example.com.
All proceeds support a fall fly-fishing retreat for Washington breast-cancer survivors. Survivors will learn to fly-fish at no cost. Any woman who has experienced breast cancer is eligible to attend the retreat, with medical clearance from her physician. Details: 206-948-4352 or e-mail Joanne Elston at firstname.lastname@example.org.
