More Than Just Jewelry

We absolutely treasure them. We collect them. We investigate their origins. We tell stories of the hunt about them. We give them places of honor on our call lanyards.

Piles of Panfish

You all know I love ice-fishing.  While folks shuffle around all bundled-up, grumbling about how cold it is, I am grinning from ear-to-ear because it means we’ve got ice and I will be ice-fishing for the next few weeks!  WOO HOO!

Trout Unlimited’s Chris Wood Talks Public Lands, Alchemy & Casting from a Shopping Cart

EXCLUSIVE
