Woman of Trout Unlimited – free membership

By Kerri Russell

P7190001In the fall of 2012, TU launched a campaign aimed at getting more women to sign up as members. In doing so, women were offered complimentary trial memberships over the course of the year. Over 2,500 women signed up! What a great success. Thanks to all of you who reached out to women in your community and invited them to join TU. Thanks also goes out to all of you that took the extra step and used the resources in the Leaders Only Tools section of the website to reach out to these women and welcome them to your chapter. It is undoubtedly because of your efforts that we can boast a 13 percent retention rate so far on these trial members >>> Read more

Wading Safety

From Trout Unlimited’s Doug Agee, Doug wrote:

wading-safetyI was sent an article this week about wading safety written by David Humphries. David is the owner of River Traditions, which is one of TU’s business partners. You have likely seen River Traditions listed as a fundraising vendor.

The main point David made is that in all the great information that can found in magazines, wading safety seems to be mostly omitted. You can find David’s blog post on Wading Safety on www.rivertraditions.com.  I can’t help but wonder if wading safety is to too closely related to ego and pride to make the lead articles.

I know I have gotten a bit wetter than planned on more than one occasion. I use a wading staff when I am not sure of the water I’m fishing and it is with me most of the time. There have even been a few instances when it helped my fishing buddy too.

I think it would be great if we, as leaders add wading safety to our dialog. Please share how you promote wading safety in your conversations. If you have a program or presentation on wading safety in your chapter, please share that too.
