Sisters on the Fly fundraising to fight cancer

Sisters On The Fly hosting show and shine

REDDING, Calif. - The Sisters on the Fly are rolling back into the Northstate for a fundraiser to fight cancer.

The Sisters on the Fly were started by two fly fishing sisters in Montana 12 years ago. Their group grew to include more than 5,000 members worldwide.

The group takes decorated vintage trailers around the country to go fly fishing together.

25 trailers are expected to meet up in Lewiston, Trinity County on Friday, August 8.

Judy Russell of Redding will be one of them.

"It's a social group, but it's an empowerment group for women who like the outdoors," Russell said. "We go hiking, horseback riding, rafting, fly fishing and just have a great time."

Frank Carlson of Baker City Oregon will come down to provide the music. The get together will be hosted by Katie Quinn, who owns land on the Trinity River in Lewiston. Everyone is welcome.

"One of the mottos of sisters on the fly, and we think everybody will agree when they come, is that we have more fun than anyone, and we really welcome our neighbors," Russell said. "Our friends and guests from near and far to come up on Saturday, enjoy the music, have something to eat and drink, and dance to the music of Frank Carlson."

The Sisters on the Fly will host a show and shine on Saturday, August 9 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Rock River Ranch at 330 River Rock Road in Lewiston.

The event costs $10, with all the proceeds benefiting the Trinity County Relay for Life.
