Casting for Recovery UK & Ireland is a flagship project of The Countryside Alliance Foundation, a charity dedicated to increasing access to our countryside and helping as many people as possible appreciate the beauty and possibilities of rural Britain.

Casting for Recovery exists to provide an opportunity for women whose lives have been profoundly affected by breast cancer to gather on an all-expenses paid retreat in a natural setting and learn the sport of fly fishing. Just as importantly, the retreats offer an opportunity to meet new friends, share stories, support others and, crucially, have fun.

Our weekend retreats incorporate advice, educational services and relaxation techniques.  The retreats are delivered by trained facilitators including a psycho-social therapist, a health care professional (e.g. physiotherapist, nurse), as well as qualified fly fishing instructors and fishing guides.
