FLY TIERS AND FLY CLUBS. PLEASE PARTICATE BY TYING "LADY COACHMAN" FLY PINS FOR THE OFFICIAL NORTHWEST CASTING FOR RECOVERY FUND RAISER FOR WOMEN WHO HAVE, OR HAVE HAD BREAST CANCER

Kaufmann's Streamborn Inc. and Umpqua Feather Merchants have teamed up to produce Walt Johnson's beautiful steelhead fly, the "Lady Coachman" as a means to raise funds for this worthy cause. The flies are available at Kaufmanns' Seattle and Bellevue stores.

How you can add to the fundraiser and have fun.
Here's an opportunity to add to the fund raiser by tying your own Lady Coachman flies as pins. They can be used as "wearable art" for hats, vests, etc.
The pins will be offered at the Northwest Fly Fishing Only show.
Fly pins will be attached to a card that will bear the tiers name. (Tied by and your name)

Deadline:
Get your finished pins to Kaufmann's Streamborn, 1911 Fourth Ave., Seattle 98101 before February 8th
so they can be offered at the upcoming Northwest Fly Fishing Only Show, Feb 11, 12, 13th at the Maydenbauer Center in Bellevue.

ALL donated funds from the sale of the fly pins go directly to Northwest Casting For Recovery. For donors to receive a pin the donation must be $12.00 or more. Casting For Recovery literature will be provided by Northwest Casting For Recovery's chairwoman, Joanne Elston at the Kaufmanns Streamborn booth.
The goal is to raise $1,000 to benefit this coming fall's Northwest retreat from the pin donations.
