Theodore Gordon Flyfishers has been a longtime advocate for the health of the cold-water fisheries in the Catskills, the tristate region, and the Northeast. The Advocacy Committee is tasked with supporting conservation-friendly litigation and  with building strong working relationships with the NYS DEC and other conservation advocacy groups throughout the region. The Advocacy Committee works to stay apprised of any active litigation aligning with TGF’s conservation mission that is in need of financial support.

To continue its mission to advocate vigorously for the riparian environment, TGF has established The Bert Darrow Fund for Legal Defense in memory of past TGF president Bert Darrow.

If you are aware of situations where our stake as sportsmen and sportswomen in a healthy, productive cold-water fishery is threatened or where the health of the streams may be diminished and where TGF might get involved to protect these vital resources, please reach out to us.
