 F3T – March 20, 2017

Fly Fishing Film Tour is coming to Moscow, ID and the showing will benefit the Casting for Recovery Northern Idaho/Eastern Washington Chapter. All proceeds from movie ticket and raffle ticket sales will go directly to the group, and will help them host their 2017 retreat for women battling or recovering from breast cancer. This is a great opportunity to support a group seeking to enrich the lives of women with breast cancer. Purchasers of movie tickets need not be present to win raffle items.

As a River Helper for the CFR’s 2015 retreat, Backcountry Lark owner Tonda Lark was inspired by the group’s work with breast cancer survivors. After helping one of the participants catch the first fish of the day, he wanted to do more, hence Backcountry Lark has sponsored this showing at the Kenworthy Performing Arts Center, Moscow Idaho.
