Casting for Hope is committed to providing limited financial assistance to women in western North Carolina who are living with ovarian or other gynecological cancers.  But more than that, Casting for Hope is committed to attending to the emotional and spiritual needs of these same women and their families through fly-fishing retreats, fly-tying and rod-building clinics, and other avenues of personal and family re-creation.

Our financial assistance focuses on women who are experiencing economic hardships due to treatment costs, while our retreat experiences serve women and their families and friends regardless of financial need. Retreats focus on emotional and spiritual healing in the out of doors, chasing trout with a fly rod, and experiencing comfort by running waters.

Casting for Hope’s flagship fundraiser is our world-championship-modeled fly-fishing competition, one of only two in the United States.  For complete tournament details, visit the “Gearing Up” tab above!  Come fish with us or help sponsor us so you, too, can become part of the Casting for Hope family!

We additionally host events throughout the year to support our cause.  For more information on upcoming events, click on “Gearing Up.”
