Welcome to the Potomac Patuxent Chapter of Trout Unlimited (PPCTU). Whether you are new to the area or just new to fly fishing this area, the information provided on this page and other pages of our website will help both beginning and experienced fly fishers. 

PPTU offers multiple ways for our anglers to communicate


The PPCTU Listserver
The chapter operates the PPCTU Listserver that all members are welcome to join. Over 150 members make use of this opportunity to post email messages to the group and receive email messages posted by others. The information that you find here is great stuff that you can’t find anywhere else. The listserver topics cover all aspects of trout fishing and will improve your knowledge of the sport, so don’t be left out.
To subscribe, send an email from the email account you want added to the listserver, to Within a few days, and often within a few hours, you will receive an email confirming your membership on the listserver. Once on the list, you can post messages to the entire group by addressing your email to
There are several options as to how messages from the listserver will come to you. The default is for the listserver to send you each message posted to the group as it arrives. A second option is to receive a daily digest, a single email message containing all the messages posted during the last day. A third option is no email delivery, using instead an online archive of messages. However, attachments that go out with messages via the other options are NOT kept in the archive, so sometimes you miss out on some things with this option.
