Outdoor communicators are a funny lot... And these days, the lot's quite big, given the prolific nature of blogs and digital media. Through this group on the new TU website, we hope to offer outdoor writers, photographers, broadcasters and bloggers a platform from which to share their work (and have it promoted through TU and its social channels), compare notes, discuss best practices and generally engage in a community that is truly unique. If you communicate about the outdoors--particularly about trout and salmon--in any fashion, we welcome you to become part of this unique community.
