Recently I have been thinking about how TU should be looked on by it's members and more importantly by the public as a whole. There is a large group within TU that believe we shouldn't be closely associated with fishing, instead acting like every other conservation group in the country. After giving it much thought I can't go along with this idea. TU was formed 50+ years ago by a group of fisherman in Michigan with the sole goal of protecting the local streams they fished, and by doing this maintaining if not enhancing their fishing. So join me in embracing the heritage of fishing that TU was founded on and that made it the strong group we know today.
