Bitterroot Valley single-fly event will raise money for national breast cancer fishing program


Manchester, VT— Casting for Recovery, a non-profit organization offering support and educational fly fishing retreats for women with breast cancer is excited to announce the second annual Cast One for Hope event that will be held October 3 and 4 in Hamilton, MT. This year’s events will include live music, a single-fly fishing event with prizes, a celebration dinner and live and silent auctions with the goal of raising more than $50,000 for Casting for Recovery programs across the country.

“Last year we had such an amazing turnout that we decided to add more elements to the event lineup this year,” says executive director Whitney Milhoan. “This event is a wonderful way for people to experience an unforgettable day of guided fly fishing while supporting a great cause. We get people out on the beautiful Bitterroot River in the fall to raise money to offer the same experience to women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer.”

This year’s events include a kickoff party with live music on Friday, October 3, from 6 - 9PM at Pineview Lodge and the main action taking place on Saturday, October 4 with the single-fly fishing event and a celebration dinner and auction at the exclusive Stock Farm Club in the evening.

Each event participant will choose a single fly to use for the day. If that fly becomes lost or unusable, the contestant is out of the running for “longest-lasting fly”, but can still continue fishing for fun to win additional prizes. There will be multiple categories that will be awarded prizes for event participants.

Registration is open to the public at $1000 per person and includes a full-day guided drift including lunch, an exclusive celebration dinner at the Stock Farm Club, awards and a ticket to the kickoff party on Friday night.

This year’s event is being sponsored by World Fishing Network, Temple Fork Outfitter Rods, American Fly Fishing Trade Association, Maven Fly, Cheeky Fly Fishing, Lolo Peak Brewing and Mountain Khakis.
