April 18 Speaker: Carl Hueter, former Michigan TU Council President, on the “History of Trout Unlimited and its Founding on the banks of the Au Sable River”

Carl Hueter will speak on the “History of Trout Unlimited and fishing Michigan’s Au Sable River” on April 18, at 7 p.m. at the Oak Brook Recreation Center Central Park West Building.

Carl was a TU National Leadership Council member subsequent to becoming Michigan TU Council Chairman. He is not only a noted conservationist of northern Michigan’s Au Sable River “Holy Waters,” but an ardent angler of the Au Sable River North Branch, a master of its hatches and an accomplished imitator of the insects found there and elsewhere. Carl is also a classic tackle aficionado who sells cane, fine reels, and other angling paraphernalia through his resurrected Wanigas Rod Company, originally operated by Art Neumann, TU’s first executive director.

Carl has been an enthusiastic supporter of Illinois TU Youth Camp and an active participant as a fly fishing instructor.  He also owns a historic river house on the North Branch of the Au Sable River where he hosts Illinois Council youth campers each summer for a fly fishing session.

A professional architect by trade, Carl makes his home in Ann Arbor.

Carl Hueter provides fly fishing instruction to 2017 youth camp participants.
