Along with helping to conserve fishing for all, TU members also enjoy socializing with other fisher folk. Most active chapters of TU have various activities that can help you meet fellow anglers while enjoying the the sport of fishing. Most chapters have a banquet or big fundraiser once a year in order to help raise funds for the conservation work they do all year long. Most of these banquets take place in the early spring & can be a great way to spend an evening out. Most banquets feature raffles & auctions for various things like fly rods, reels, fishing trips, books, - you name it.
We're coming up on what TU members refer to as "banquet season". Now would be a good time to look into becoming active in your local TU chapter.
