The 2016 Spey-O-Rama international spey casting tournament is only two months away, and we’re proud to announce that our own Whitney Gould is going to be competing!
However, what we’re even more proud about is that during this year’s competition, Whitney is teaming up with fellow Spey-O-Rama winner, Mia Sheppard, to help raise money for a great cause; Casting for Recovery.
Here’s how it works – You determine what you think Whitney and Mia’s longest cast will be, add them together, and then make a pledge based on that combined total footage. For example, if both Whitney and Mia have a longest cast of 130 feet (for a combined total of 260 feet) and you donate $1.00/foot, then you will donate $260.00 to Casting for Recovery. All donations raised will be split 50/50 between Northern California and Northern Oregon CFR programs.
PLUS, the person that comes closest to guessing the combined distance of Whitney and Mia’s longest cast, will receive a guided trip with Little Creek Outfitters of Oregon. The person that comes the next closest, will receive two hours of quality casting instruction from Whitney Gould. To make a donation, click here to visit CFR’s pledge page.
For those of you who aren’t aware, Casting for Recovery is a program dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for all breast cancer survivors through the camaraderie and inspiration of fly fishing. It’s a really, really, great cause, and if this is your first time hearing about CFR, make sure to check out their website, here!
