Mr. Golub:

On behalf of the Worldwide Flyfishing Forum ( and Flytying Forum (, I am pleased to be able to offer this donation of flies that have been tied by some of our generous members. We believe very strongly that your organizationís mission is positive and just, and we are very happy to be able to contribute with our donations. Although our tying efforts pale in comparison to the tasks that CFR takes on every day, we hope that our flies will bring some joy and comfort to those who use them.

Our tiers who have donated flies come from far and wide:

We plan to keep this fly donation as an annual event within our groups so that we can continue to support CFR and its objectives in the future. Itís a positive and poignant way for us to remember those who have passed on from cancer, and to help support those who struggle with it on a daily basis.

Best wishes,

We had just under two dozen tiers and nearly 500 flies donated. Thank you to all who contributed for such an enorumous and generous donation.

You have all truly made a difference and should be proud of yourselves.

Here's a copy of a message that I received from CFR...

Seline here, Exec. Dir. of the wonderful cover letter to CFR about fly donations! Thank you so much...

We are so appreciative of the donation. It means so much to the women that people from around the world are reaching out.

Flies go on lines, they are put on hats and forever thought of as a token of caring and their special time during the weekend!

Thanks so much again. Will post a general email to thank everyone!
Best, Seline


Once again, thanks to all participants!
