You may have read Kirk Deeter’s work in Field & Stream magazine; he’s an editor-at-large for the world’s leading outdoors publication, having penned stories on a number of “out there” fly-fishing topics, from catching mako sharks on the fly from a kayak, to exploring the remote jungles of Guyana and Bolivia with natives in dugout canoes, to teaching Alaskan Eskimos how to fly fish. He’s fished from the tip of Tierra del Fuego in Argentina to above the Arctic Circle in Russia, and racked up a number of “Excellence in Craft” awards from the Outdoor Writers Association of America for producing the nation’s best magazine feature stories on fishing in the process. He’s also the author of the best-selling Little Red Book of Fly Fishing, and the newly-released Orvis Guide to Fly Fishing for Carp.
But now he’s part of the Trout Unlimited team. Deeter assumed the helm as editor of the organization’s flagship publication, TROUT magazine, a little over a year ago, and he’s busy transforming that magazine into what he calls a “lifestyle” publication that “caters to the soul and conscience of trout angling in America.”
Deeter loves Texas. (He’s from the Great Lakes region and now lives in Colorado.) But he’s been to speak to GRTU once before, and based on that experience, he’s been itching to get back.
He plans a “no holds barred,” interactive presentation this time. From the wild and extreme adventures to be had around the world, to the simple pleasures found right out the back door—as well as the state of TU, where he’s going with TROUT magazine, fly-fishing industry trends, gear opinions… all will be fair game.
So if you want glimpse at where TU is going, want to offer advice, or if you have questions for one of the noted “insiders” and opinion leaders in fly fishing, this will be your chance.
