News

Around the first month, the Land O’ Sky Chapter sends a newsletter to our members and friends to let them know what’s going on in the chapter and with other conservation projects in the area and across the state.  We hope you’re already a member of our mailing list, but if not you can subscribe using the form at the bottom of this page.

The state council of North Carolina also sends out monthly emails and a free quarterly feature magazine, “The Drift,” loaded with news, opinion, how-to’s, trip reports and lots of other content of interest to the conservation and fly angling community.  In the case of our chapter, the council, and TU national, your personal information is never shared with other organizations or individuals for any purpose.

There is in the very haunts of the brook trout a suggestion of where it gets its vigor and wariness: the cold, clear streams where the water is pure; brooks that wind in and out over rocky and pebbly beds, here shaded by trees and there dashing through the open–it makes us feel vigorous even to think of such streams.
