The Trout Line Newsletter - March 5, 2018


March 5, 2018


Welcome to The Trout Line Newsletter! This is our Tualatin Valley Trout Unlimited Chapter newsletter that will be coming out twice a month on the 1st and 3rd Mondays of the month.


Outings Schedule for 2018


Make room on your calendars to join members from both Tualatin Valley and Clackamas Chapters of Trout Unlimited for any or all of the 9 scheduled events! These are scheduled from April through October to be able to accommodate even the busiest of schedules!
Many of our outings are day trips but several extend into multi-day campouts on some of Oregon's more scenic and productive waters. Meet other members and learn or share fishing techniques. Evening gatherings are encouraged and the trips often involve one evening where the chapters provide an entree course for a potluck-style barbecue dinner - so share your favorite side dish or dessert with others and enjoy reveling in the stories of the day!
Reservations/RSVP are not required but are appreciated. Contact Andy Andrews ( for additional information and directions if needed! Please join us!

March 14, 2018 (Joint Meeting with Stonefly Maidens)

Speaker:  Jason Borger

Topic:  Nymphing Concepts

Jason Borger grew up in the world of fly fishing, and has been involved in fly-fishing education and the industry in general for much of his life.  His work in the study and teaching of fly casting has lead to his involvement as a fly-fishing consultant and double the commercials and movies, including A River Runs Through It and The River Why.  Since his teens, Jason has been teaching, shooting videos, and writing articles and books on fly fishing.  His book, Single-Handed Fly Casting, is considered one of the key modern works on the subject.  He also co-founded the Fly Casting Institute, which is dedicated to advancing the science, medicine and art of fly casting.  In addition to his angling background, Jason has professional history in illustration and production graphic design, as well as a degree in film and television production graphic design, as well as a degree in film and television production and theory.  For more information visit
