    Nick Altringer

    Our guest speaker for our April 16th Meeting will be Nick Altringer.

    Nick will speak on getting the youth involved in fly fishing. This ties to Lew Jewett and our running of the Youth Class at the Great Waters Fly Fishing Expo. Many of our members have families and want to involve their children and/or grandchildren in fly fishing. Other members are interested in teaching at these youth events. Come learn how to introduce the youth to fly fishing, find panfish, and the local lakes holding them.

    Nick started by running summer youth camps from the early 2000s to 2010. In 2004, Nick started teaching fly casting lessons at schools and guiding for Paige at Kinni Creek Lodge and Outfitters. As a Youth Education TCTU Board Member, along with Janine Kohn from Pheasants Forever, he helped lay the groundwork for their T.U.N.E. Camp.

    In 2011, Nick decided to go back to get his teaching license. He also bought a hard-bottom driftboat to focus on guiding adults in the summer. He has worked a lot with Kip Vieth from Wildwood Float Trips and his own company, Fly Quest, in the background: https://www.mwflyquest.com/.

    Since 2013, Nick has been teaching in St. Paul. He has participated in MNTUs trout in the classroom program since it started and has offered a fly tying and fishing class in the after-school program since 2014.
