A while back we told you about a great fundraiser taking place at this year’s Spey-O-Rama International Spey Casting Tournament. In case you missed it, our own Whitney Gould teamed up with fellow spey casting guru, Mia Sheppard, to help raise money for the good folks at Casting for Recovery by encouraging donors to pledge dollars per foot on the cumulative total of their longest cast during the competition.
Despite some blustery conditions, Whitney and Mia still managed to chuck a combined distance of 265 feet, thus raising over $7,000.00 for Northern California and Northern Oregon Casting for Recovery retreats. Wow.
We think that’s pretty darn cool and applaud all who helped contribute to such a great cause. Awesome job ladies!

Well done, Mia and Whitney for the special contribution.
The people you have helped may never know your names,
but their grandchildren will rise up to thank you one day.
With deepest appreciation for all 265 feet. Chuck French
Mia Sheppard says
