Build your own Driftboat


Want the ultimate fly fishing experience? FREE: a complete set of 16’ Don Hill wood driftboat plans with a materials list and local (Portland) sources. The ribs are built. My son-in-law and I were going to build it, and then our daughter and he moved away. A Don Hill was my first driftboat – I loved the warmth, handling, and beauty of that boat. An example photo is attached (trailer not included). If interested, email Mike Dahlstrom at



TVTU Board Spots are Open

With one Board member’s move and several retirements, a few spots are now open on the TVTU Chapter Board and the Board is seeking new members. The tasks are not great. Board meetings are currently held via Zoom at 6 p.m. on the fourth Tuesday of the month, with some months skipped if not needed. We encourage anyone who might be interested to join in on one of the meetings to get a feel for what helping run the Chapter entails. If you would like to consider Board membership, please contact Mike Gentry at (503) 724-7734 or
