Newsletter – January 2024

Wow – we’re mostly thru January already. Sounds like we’re in for a warmup – get out fishing and use some good info from Jason Rieke’s article in our latest newsletter. Here’s the January Newsletter. 


We’ve got a solid schedule of speakers lined up thru May. Please see the list at the bottom of this email for details.  We try to zoom these out to cover our huge chapter area – an email near to each date will be sent with a zoom link.

Saturday Fly tying continues at 125Live.

Also, as noted in the newsletter, TUDARE hosts the Driftless Symposium each spring. This year’s is March 11th – 12th. Lately its been held virtually. See the newsletter for details.

If you’d like to be a TiC or volunteer at other MNTU Education events – please print out the form found here, fill it out, and mail it (like with a stamp and envelope!) to the address on the form. That’ll get your background check done, and once you pass, you’ll get added to the roster of possible volunteers.  We know its a little bit of a hassle, but it’s what we’re mandated by law to do. So please fill it out and send it in if you’d like to volunteer at our education events.
