Free T.U. Memberships For Women

It's really no secret that fly fishing is largely a sport enjoyed by men and the ranks of the main organizations (Trout Unlimited/Federation of Fly Fishers) are also populated with (ever aging) fellows as well.  Where are the ladies?  Not as often on the water or at the monthly meetings either but that is all slowly starting to change.   

Trout Unlimited made an interesting move last week and began offering free introductory memberships to women.  Smart move though I'm not sure if it will create a windfall of lady memberships in the long run but certainly a step in the right direction. 

Hey about free Stream Explorer memberships too and start children foot forward in cold water conservation too?  Our daughter is really digging her membership that she got for Christmas last year and it would be neat to see that program and membership grow as well in the coming years.

In the end, fly fishing as a whole needs a younger membership of both men and women, and children need to be getting involved too for conservation and just the overall growth of the sport as well.

Ladies...for more information on your free introductory membership check out the Trout Unlimited website.  Signing up takes all of thirty seconds.
