Date: September 02, 2007
Author: Dick Nelson, Hudson-Catskill group of newspapers

The Columbia-Greene Rip Van Winkle Chapter of Trout Unlimited -- which in recent years has gone from a chapter close to disbandment, to one of the most energetic organizations in the state – has, with the establishment of its own website, added yet another means of communication to its creel of high tech.

“We have made every effort to make the website easy to understand and navigate,” said chapter president Hank Theiss, who asked those logging onto to the website ( to have patience as they put the pieces of the electronic jigsaw puzzle together.

“It will become more complete in the future as time and circumstances allow, and eventually most of our chapter documents and established paperwork will be located in this central repository.  It will sort of become our future as well as our history,” Theiss said. 

For more information on the website and/or chapter membership call Theiss at (518) 851-9442, or by email at:
