While our membership surveys indicate that the majority of TU's members prefer fly fishing, TU does not endorse any specific method of angling. Whatever your style, we do encourage catch-and-release fishing as a means of conservation. The only prerequisite is that you care about the future of America's trout and salmon fisheries and their watersheds - and want to do something about it.
