Melissa and I were approached last year by a returning customer to make a special popper for the ladies at Casting For Recovery. If you don't know about this organization, take a moment to read about it here. I have been a supporter of Casting For Recovery, Project Healing Waters, and Wounded Warrior to name but a few. I truly believe the work these organizations do saves lives. We had been wanting to donate some flies to one of these worthy groups for a while now. Well, we finally got the opportunity. Our customer asked us to partner with him to design a popper for the ladies. Melissa took some time and did some research on Casting For Recovery. She was able to come up with a design that both she and the customer liked. It was to be a simple popper with a pink stripe in the middle surrounded by purple stripes. That way the pink stripe would be the focus of the popper. We also came up with some Persuaders in purple and pink to do as well. Naturally, we were very excited about this. Sadly, not everything goes as planned. My injury made getting these awesome poppers out last year impossible. It took us until this year to make these happen but I am so glad that we did it. We both feel a sense of pride and happiness in giving a little something back to the community and in helping to support a worthy organization such as Casting For Recovery. Both of our families have been touched by cancer. We have lost loved ones on both sides so this was very important for us to accomplish. Upon delivery, we heard that the ladies loved them. Hopefully, one day someone will share some photos of what they caught with them. Until then, enjoy these photos of what was created for the ladies.
