Majority of the  proceeds go to benefit our friends at The Mayfly Project-

The Mayfly Project is a 501(c)(3) organization that uses fly fishing as a catalyst to mentor children in foster care. Our mission is to build relationships with children in foster care through fly fishing and introduce them to their local water ecosystems, with a hope that connecting them to a rewarding hobby will provide an opportunity for them to have fun, feel supported, and develop a meaningful connection with the outdoors.  The Mayfly Project's standard program is to mentor a foster child through five sessions we call "stages", just like the life cycle of a Mayfly.  Within these stages, the children learn line management, casting techniques, knot tying, etymology, river safety, mending tactics, hook setting, catch and release tactics and the value of conservation. At the end of the five stages the child is given his or her very own fly rod, reel, pack, fly box, flies, tippet, indicators, etc.  Each project is unique and may contain more or less stages, but the goal is to provide a well-round and safe fly fishing experience for children in foster care.

New this year! A portion of the proceeds will also benefit previous benefactors such as Reel Recovery, Project Healing Waters and Casting for Recovery. Depending on the support we get, up to $200.00 will go to each of these organizations.
