More good work from the fly fishing community
In 2006, a small but dedicated group of fly tiers in the Fayetteville, NC area planned a fund raising event to support the efforts of the March of Dimes in working to prevent preterm birth.
The inaugural event was an immediate success, raising over $3500 for the March of Dimes, and donating approximately 350 flies to Casting for Recovery. We have now completed three Tie-a-thons. Together these Tie-a-thons and related events have raised over $15,000 for the March of Dimes, and more than 800 flies have been donated! In addition, these events have been a lot of fun and have allowed us to introduce numerous people to the joys of fly tying.
