Join Us

The Northwestern Chapter was founded in 1963, shortly after TU was founded. Many of our members have been in the chapter for more than ten years, some more than twenty. We’re not only a Fly-Fishing club, we’re an ALL-Fishing Club.  No matter if you’re a bait-caster, lure caster, fish on Fresh or Saltwater, use a boat, waders, personal watercraft or dock, sit on the ice;  we’re into it.  Our chapter is involved with the community, both in conservation activities and education activities.
