Overview:

Theodore Gordon Flyfishers Inc.
The Theodore Gordon Flyfishers, Inc. is a not for profit angling organization, founded on American fly fishing traditions, promoting stream and river protection and self-sustainable salmonid populations through conservation, environmental oversight, activism, catch-and-release practices, and education. TGF was founded in 1963 by a group of farsighted men who saw a great need to bring about an organization of sportsmen who would use their collective voice and resources to protect and conserve cold-water fisheries and riparian habitat in the greater Tri-State area of New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and more recently Connecticut. The twenty-one founding members of TGF, many of whom are famous in their own right, were dedicated fly fishers and conservationists.
