Theodore Gordon Flyfishers

With its founding in 1963, Theodore Gordon Flyfishers, led by Lee Wulff, Ed Zern, Ernest Schweibert and Ted Rogowski, a relatively small group of dedicated members championed the first catch and release regulations on public access rivers in the United States.

Since then TGF has continued to promote and fight for increased public access, conducted stream monitoring and habitat improvement projects in concert with other angling and conservation organizations, sponsored worthy youngsters at NYSDEC conservation camps, initiated the very successful Trout In The Classroom program in public schools, and perhaps most importantly and uniquely among angling organizations, from its beginnings to the present, TGF has continued to be involved and does not shy away from litigation when required to protect our cherished fisheries!
