Fly Fishing & Spirituality Retreat
June 2–4, 2017
The Delaware River Club has joined forces with Vito Baldini, the Mercy Ministries pastor of Liberti Church in Philadelphia (http://libertichurch.org/#main), and Jody Martin (author of the recent book The Spirituality of Fly Fishing) to offer you a weekend like no other. Days will be spent learning how to fly fish and casting to wild trout on the storied Upper Delaware River, one of the top 5 wild trout streams in the U.S., while evenings will be devoted to furthering our understanding of the spiritual nature of fly fishing – why we are so drawn to it, how it helps and heals us, what we want and expect from it, and how we can give the gift to others – based on Jody’s book.
Men, women, couples, families, and even children (over the age of 15) are encouraged to attend, as there is sure to be something meaningful for everyone. Lodging, meals, fly fishing instruction, guided fishing, and spiritual discussions – everything is included! The DRC offers several lodging options and can accommodate just about any size group. Also available are hiking trails, a private 3 acre fishing pond, and an outdoor pool.
The weekend retreat includes a two night stay at the Delaware River Club (double occupancy), Continental Breakfast on Saturday and Sunday, half-day guided fishing with lunch on Saturday, dinner in our dining room on Friday and Saturday night, and wading gear rental. Cost per person is $475.
Come relax, recharge your batteries, get closer to God, and become engaged in the wonderful and spiritual world of fly fishing! But register soon – spaces are limited! Call or email us to reserve your spot.
