Fellow Members, Through this program Rocky River Trout Unlimited members have the opportunity to learn more about places to fish as well as gain skills and experience with some of our most experienced member anglers within our Trout Unlimited Chapter.
Our experienced anglers within the chapter volunteer to sponsor angling trips to take recipients that are willing to make a donation to the chapter. Your donation to the chapter is fully tax deductible for the recipient.
The companion trip is considered an in kind gift to the chapter therefore the associated costs are also deductible for the sponsor. This program will raise conservation funds for the chapter ongoing as well as serve members to be more actively involved.
The process begins with a sponsor (the Companion Angler) willing to provide a trip. The trip is defined based on the Rocky River Trout Unlimited Companion Angler Program Guidelines and announced to the membership along with a suggested donation. The first member to step forward pledging a donation will be awarded the trip or should the trip have multiple members interested, the chapter leadership will seek additional sponsors. The sponsor (the Companion Angler) and arranges a mutual time for the trip. Based on the specifics of the trip, the trip is completed – a win, win for the donating member, the sponsor (the Companion Angler) and the Chapter.
If there is not a Companion trip announced, you may also make a request for a Companion Angler by downloading and completing the same form above.
What a great excuse to find more time to go fishing as well as raise funds for conservation!
Thank you for being a donor or a participant.
Steve McLure, President, Rocky River Trout Unlimited
