Reel Recovery: Texas & Oklahoma Region

Texas & Oklahoma News – Winter/Spring 2014 Newsletter! 

REEL RECOVERY is a national non-profit organization that conducts free fly-fishing retreats for men recovering from cancer. Their purpose is to help men in the recovery process by sharing with them the healing powers of the sport of fly-fishing, while providing a safe, supportive environment to explore personal experiences with cancer, with others who share their stories.


  • Provide a safe, reflective environment for the participants to discuss their disease and recovery with other men with shared experiences, thereby providing support and information to help them in their recovery.
  • Provide expert fly-fishing instruction that enables the participants to learn a new skill, form a healing connection with nature, and participate in a sport they can continue throughout their recovery and lifetime.
  • Provide participants information about cancer-related resources, both in the local community and nationally to facilitate networking and enhanced management of their recovery.


If you would like to be a participant, volunteer, or make a donation please contact us.
