Wish List for Fly Donations

Fly Donations

Many thanks to the numerous groups and individuals who have responded to our appeal by donating flies for our programs. We have had a tremendous response from individuals and clubs around the country.

In addition to using the flies that have been donated for fishing at the retreats, special collections of flies have been utilized for fundraising. Some donors have donated a box of flies for each participant at a particular retreat.

If you are interested in contributing flies to CFR, please see our list below.

Flies Needed

  • For fishing – Bead-head Nymphs (sizes 10, 12); Attractor Dry Flies (sizes 8-12); Terrestrials (sizes 10, 12); Wooly Buggers (lightly weighted, sizes 6, 8); Parachute Adams (sizes 10, 12)
  • For fundraising – Special Flies or Collections (by exceptional tiers)
  • For participants – Put together a box of flies for each participant, each with an assortment of 6-12 flies. There are 14 participants at each retreat.
  • For prize drawings at the retreats – put together a box of flies for one lucky participant.

These flies are distributed where needed.
