We received a note from long-time TVTU member Jack Morby who wanted to share a program opportunity that he is involved with - Angler Education Instructor! The program is run by ODFW and is a volunteer opportunity to share something we all enjoy - fishing in Oregon! Along with simply fishing the program strives to participants with a full range of knowledge associated with fishing - basic fishing skills, stewardship, aquatic resources and water safety. Get involved and share with others - the more people who become aware the better off the future for our sport!

When: Saturday April 2, 2016
Where: Glenn Otto Park - Sam Cox Building
What Time: 10 am to 3 pm
What to Do: *Registration Deadline - March 30 [end of business day]
