Australian Trout Foundation ATF Online
Life Membership Presentation

Today the ATF celebrated its first Life Membership award with a presentation to Mick Hall. It if was not for Philip Bailey and Mick, the ATF would not exist, Trout would likely no longer be present in Victoria and the collaborative envirnoment we have today between VFFA, native fish and trout organisations would not be as great as it now is. Mick was directly involved with the ATF for twenty years, served for over ten years as its President and has many accomplishments in promoting and protecting not just our Trout fishery but native fish as well.

Mick's examples of collaboration, partnerships and working together are a testament to what the ATF continues to strive for and progress today in promoting healthy waterways, fisheries and making it possible for future generations to catch a trout or native fish anywhere in Australia. Today we were pleased for Terry George (current ATF President) to present our first Life Membership to the legend that is Mick Hall - may we all be a glimmer of the leading light he has provided for over twenty years.
