Do you recall.....


Hopefully you remember that email from the Oregon Council where TU partnered with Columbia Sportswear and all members had access to the employee store for the month of October?

The effort is a now an annual fundraiser for TU of Oregon - a portion of all purchases by members is donated back to the Oregon Council to support state level activities including paid administrators/coordinators, state projects, project development and chapter development - all in Oregon. This gives TU great strength in Salem.....

Don't forget....

FREE FISHING WEEKEND!
WHEN: February 17-18, 2018

WHERE: State of Oregon! Anywhere and everywhere that water is open to fishing/catching.
WHAT TIME: Legal Daylight Hours [unless some warmwater spots are open...]
WHAT to EXPECT:
Fishing without tags or licenses is allowed for anywhere and anything that is open - all other rules remain in place - limits, species, closures etc. This is not quite free-for-all but it is a great chance to get someone the introduction everyone deserves. Including entire family units! Just follow the other rules - regulations are ONLINE.
ODFW has been authorized by the state to schedule for up to 8-free fishing events in a year in hopes that this will provide opportunity for clubs and individuals to introduce folks into outdoor activities that they may not generally be interested or be unable to afford.
WHAT TO BRING: a friend! This is a great opportunity to introduce someone on the "cheap". Enjoy!

GENERAL MEETING!
WHEN: Wednesday, February 14, 2018
WHERE: Lucky Lab Public House; Multnomah Village
WHAT TIME: 6:00 p.m.
WHAT to EXPECT:
Chris Santella - "The Tug is the Drug"
Chris combines some readings from his latest book, The Tug is the Drug, and some of his original fly fishing songs. His peripatetic lifestyle and eye for entertaining details--even those that have little to do with the act of throwing flies at fish--will make you look at fishing in a whole different way.
WHAT TO BRING: a friend and extend your hand! Some coin for liquid refreshment and a slice.....Enjoy!

February at TVTU?

Waters may be dropping early this month - but if it warms too much we're likely to get some melty and that emerald green that we all look for will begin to turn milky white....let's hope it doesn't stay that way!

In the meantime, what is there there for you to do? Plenty! From member meetings with Chris Santella to some great classes with our friends at Royal Treatment Fly Fishing. Check us out:
