James William Coursey 1941-2021

Jim was an extremely influential President of Elliott Donnelley Trout Unlimited.  He helped found TUDARE to promote cold water conservation in the Driftless Area, and created it's name. He was the driving force behind the  cooperative relationship between the Nohr and Elliott Donnelley TU Chapters, and remained very active in both Chapters long after his Presidency. EDTU, cold water conservation and the sport of fly fishing are all greater because of Jim Coursey.
