In addition to acting as guides, club members during the year, helped to raise funds to purchase fly rod outfits for the ladies, and donated flies for the event and for CFR South Jersey fund raisers. CFR brings ladies together who are battling or recovering from breast cancer. The program is very supportive, building hope for the future and building relationships between the participants. The casting action of fly fishing is a natural way to improve lymph fluid flows which assists in battling and recovering from this disease. Our members paired off one on one with each participant to help them fish the lake at Outdoor World Campground. The fishing was fun and it gave the ladies a chance to apply what they had been learning earlier in the weekend.  They caught over 60 fish, had lots of laughs, and enjoyed a great morning on the water.  CFR then hosted a picnic lunch and thanked us for our help. Our then club presented each participant with their own brand new L. L. Bean fly rod and reel outfit, along with a fly box containing more than a dozen flies tied by our members.  Also, members had donated various flies and fly fishing items that were raffled off to raise funds to cover costs for next year’s program.  CFR offers this program at no charge to participants.  The 2013 retreat was considered one of the best of the five retreats. New for 2014, in May, is a reunion for all five years held at the Outdoor World Campground sponsored by SJCFA.
