TU Philosophy...We believe that trout and salmon fishing isn't just fishing for trout and salmon. It's fishing for sport rather than food, where the true enjoyment of the sport lies in the challenge, the lore, the battle of wits, not necessarily the full creel. It's the feeling of satisfaction that comes limiting your kill instead of killing your limit. It's communing with nature where the chief reward is a refreshed body and a contented soul, where a license is a permit to use not abuse, to enjoy not destroy our cold water fishery. It's subscribing to the proposition that what's good for trout and salmon is good for the fisherman and that managing trout and salmon for themselves rather than the fisherman is fundamental to the solution of our trout and salmon problems. It's appreciating our fishery resource, respecting fellow anglers and giving serious thought to tomorrow.

The "Paumonok", Our Monthly Newsletter
by Tom McCoy
This book will get you started!
Our newsletter, the Paumonok, was first introduced in September 1973. Its purpose was to highlight the conservation efforts
our chapter was involved in, as well as provide some stories, anecdotes, tips, techniques, and other useful information. Today,
we still carry on this tradition of producing a monthly newsletter containing a snapsohot of our chapter's activities. We do,
however, take 2 months off in July and August. Today we circulate the Paumonok newsletter to over 450 email recipients.
about anything mentioned in the newsletter, please send an email inquiry to our editor. The email address is: firstname.lastname@example.org
