BlackFly Lodge introduces a new pink skiff to raise awareness for CfR’s national fly fishing retreats for women with breast cancer.
Manchester, VT—March 31, 2014—Casting for Recovery, a non-profit organization offering support and educational retreats for women with breast cancer is excited to be honored by BlackFly Lodge, a Bahamas based fly fishing operation that commissioned a pink skiff to raise awareness of breast cancer and CfR. This new boat will be used for guided fly fishing trips in the Bahamas and will feature the Casting for Recovery logo. This is the fifth boat that has a theme at BlackFly Lodge and it will be used for general guided trips as well as special trips hosted by fly fishing professionals.
Clint Kemp, managing partner of BlackFly Lodge, called on East Cape Skiffs to build the custom boat as a tribute to his aunt, Rochelle McCabe, who has just completed her breast cancer treatments in Orlando. The boat will serve as a constant reminder of the struggle endured by many and a source of hope that one day a cure for breast cancer will be discovered. BlackFly Lodge also donated a fishing trip that will be auctioned at CfR’s annual Cast One for Hope national fundraiser in Montana in October.
“There are so many great organizations doing amazing work with breast cancer and it is our privilege to partner with Casting for Recovery,” says Clint Kemp managing partner of BlackFlyLodge. “We hope that the pink skiff will bring greater awareness to the work and mission of CfR and every name that is signed under her hatches will be a testimony to love and hope.”
“We are honored to be part of the creation of this boat and the journey it is about to embark on,” says Casting for Recovery executive director Whitney Milhoan. “This stunning boat will be a great reminder that so many people are touched by breast cancer and we are excited to follow it, chronicle its journeys and see how many lives it touches. Here at CfR we strive to create awareness and spread the love of fly fishing and that is exactly what this boat will do in the Bahamas and beyond.”
