Ernest Schwiebert Chapter of

Trout Unlimited (ESCTU)

Founded July 28, 1974

Ernest "Ernie" Schwiebert, an architect by profession, was a renowned fly fisherman and angling author. He spent his childhood in the Chicago area, earned his bachelor's degree in architecture from Ohio State University, and earned two
doctorates at Princeton University in architecture and the history and philosophy of architecture.

Ernie made many influential contributions throughout his life as an author, architect, and student of the art and science of fly fishing for trout and salmon. He wrote more than a dozen books about fly fishing and architecture.

Ernie Schwiebert was a pioneer in the fishery conservation movement and was involved in the founding of Trout Unlimited (TU), Theodore Gordon Flyfishers and the Federation of Fly Fishers (FFF). He served as a Director of both Theodore Gordon Flyfishers and the Atlantic Salmon Federation, and on the scientific advisory boards of TU, FFF and The Nature Conservancy. In recognition of his contributions, this Trout Unlimited Chapter is proudly named for him.
