Working with companies who make us better anglers

Various fly fishing companies have long-supported conservation. Orvis is the standard against which all others are matched. Sharing TU’s conservation priorities with their customers, donating their own resources, and encouraging their customers to do the same. Orvis rocks. Costa Del Mar largely built our TU Costa Five Rivers program which now helps several thousand college students from over 100 colleges and universities fulfill their community service requirements through conservation. Simms has supported a variety of TU youth initiatives and campaigns such as the effort to protect the Smith River in Montana from an ill-advised copper mine. Fishpond not only makes great fishing bags, they are major supporters of efforts to keep public lands in public hands. Vedavoo, another bag company in western Massachusetts, like so many other fly fishing companies, contributes product to TU “at cost” for us to offer as premiums to members and supporters.

Conservation programs on the chopping block

The Trump administration is once again proposing significant government funding cuts that that would hamstring critical clean water programs and weaken TU’s federal partners. If these cuts were enacted, they would undermine efforts by Trout Unlimited and our conservation partners to protect coldwater habitat in places like the Colorado River basin, the Chesapeake Bay and Delaware River watersheds, and native salmon spawning ranges across the Northwest and Alaska. TU leverages federal program investments with private and foundation dollars and volunteer labor to do on-the-ground work that benefits both fisheries, communities and local economies.

We are TU: Alex Herrera

This is a question I think about quite a lot. The little kid I used to be wouldn’t believe you if you told him this is where he’d be today. I’d just tell him to keep shooting high and that eventually all his dreams would slowly fall into place. He just has to give it time. I can still remember wanting my own fishing jersey more than anything else as a little kid, and I honestly don’t think 8-year-old Alex would be able to handle seeing himself on a stage, with a jersey, taking home a trophy. But these things don’t just happen, and I’d make sure he knows that he has to work for it every step of the way.  

EPA unravels Clean Water Rule

“We cannot overstate how far this sets us back when it comes to protecting our water,” said Chris Wood, president and CEO of Trout Unlimited, the oldest and largest coldwater conservation organization in the country. “No one wins when our water supplies are polluted. Allowing chemicals or waste to be dumped into headwaters during the dry part of the season harms the people who live downstream when the rainy season comes. You can bet on gravity every time. Whatever is in our headwaters will ultimately end up in our own backyards.” 

Lifestyle

We sleep, breathe and occasionally even eat trout and salmon — and we love to talk about it.
