What happens at a retreat

At Casting for Recovery retreats we provide free, at no cost to participants:

             Tuition in all aspects of fly casting and fishing
             Pampering sessions; and
             Comfortable accommodation, meals, and all necessary equipment.


Casting for Recovery retreats are fun outdoor/indoor activities that aim to inspire and energize women recovering from breast cancer treatment through the medium of fly casting. The gentle motion of fly casting can be good physical therapy for increasing mobility in the arm and upper body. The retreat incorporates both fly fishing instruction and social support ending with a day of guided catch and release fishing. The program is appropriate for women at least 4 months post-surgery, chemo or radiation and who have their doctor’s approval. This FREE and FUN retreat will be held at Ballarat within a relaxed and positive environment. All meals, accommodation and fishing equipment are supplied. Just bring along your sense of adventure, love for learning new things and the ability to enjoy a little pampering. No fishing experience is necessary. Pampering activities include an afternoon with Look Good Feel Better and some nail care.
