From the very beginning TPO diligently served one goal; to help share information about the sport that we all love. Our community has a few rules as set out in our mission statement:
This fly fishing site was founded for informational and educational purposes. The mission of TPO is to provide fly fishing knowledge that leads to more Trout on your fly line. Posts should concentrate on Reports, Inquiries, and General Fishing Conversation. Any posts that are inflammatory, insulting, or otherwise ill-natured will be removed immediately, and individuals who habitually violate these rules will be asked to leave. TPO is a catch and release fly fishing community, which also welcomes anglers of all methods and persuasions, please help keep our rivers clean and our fish healthy!
