Order of the Tie

The Order of the Tie is presented to a Chapter member who has performed an outstanding duty or service for benefit of the Chapter or TU as a whole. The previous winners select the winner and is normally presented by the last winner.  The award was conceived by Ernie Hille in 1968, modeled on the Harrisburg Fly Fisher’s award.
