Fishing for Mental Health
Katie Cahn is inspiring the new spirit of fly fishing
Katie Cahn grew up paddling the Chattooga, where she did stints as a rafting guide. She has also led fishing trips with the non-profit Casting for Recovery, which teaches cancer patients and survivors how to fly fish. But fishing is not Cahn’s job. It’s her release. Cahn believes this sort of transparency will help other women cope with their own struggles and hopefully normalize the notion that a woman should take time for herself. She believes fly fishing could help more women rediscover themselves after years of putting others first.
