Orvis/TU Ambassador Program

The Orvis/TU Ambassador Program is a close working relationship between Princeton Orvis and Ernest Schwiebert TU Chapter. ESCTU Chapter members attend Princeton Orvis Fly Fishing and Fly Tying classes and assist the Orvis Fly Fishing Staff during Casting and Fly Tying instructional sessions. The Orvis/TU Ambassadors also participate in the classroom discussions and Fly Fishing field trips.

Orvis Fly Fishing Staff endorse Trout Unlimited and provide the TU Ambassadors the opportunity to speak about Trout Unlimited's mission, and the specific program that the Ernest Schwiebert Chapter Trout Unlimited offers.

The Orvis/TU Ambassadors also extol the virtues of the other New Jersey TU Chapters and suggest the students research and visit those near them to determine which program best meets there needs.

Students who complete the Orvis sponsored Fly Fishing and Fly Tying classes are provided with a TU link that offers them the first year or membership in TU for Free.
