I joined TU a long time ago but have been truly active for the last 15 years. When I was a beginning trout fisherman in my early twenties my next-door neighbor in my home town insisted that if I was going to fish for trout, I had to join TU to do my part in protecting trout and the cold water resources which I enjoyed. My mentor neighbor was right then and even more so now, since trout habitat continues to be endangered from our modern life-style which brings with it pollution and over-development in our natural areas.
Since my mid-forties life has allowed me to become a more active member. Since then, the gifts of my participation in TU have been many. I am a better fisherman because I have learned so much from other TU’ers who are more knowledgeable and willing to share from their time on the water. My “hands on” stream restoration work and networking with like-minded fisherman has created opportunities for me to develop great friendships, which I rank as the highest prize of my TU participation.
