Andrew is the President and Communications Coordinator for NCC-TU. A D.C area native, he attended Georgetown University here in our Nation's Capital and has been plying the waters of the Mid-Atlantic since he swapped his golf clubs for a fly rod several years ago. Whether "blue-lining" for native brook trout in Shenandoah National Park, pursuing wild trout on the limestone creeks of Southern Pennsylvania or running his fishing raft on the rivers of Western Maryland, he can be found most weekends chasing after one of the many freshwater species that call our area home.
A graduate of the National Outdoor Leadership School in Wyoming and Sweetwater Guide School in Montana, Andrew is studying to become a Certified Fly-Casting Instructor and is excited about the opportunity to lead the Chapter.

Joshua Young Treasurer
Josh is the Treasurer of NCC-TU. Growing up in Pennsylvania, Josh learned to fish on the East Coast before heading to Boulder, CO to study at The University of Colorado. It was there that he honed his skills and passion for pursuing trout throughout the coldwater fisheries of the Rocky Mountain west. Josh worked in a local fly shop and guided clients in Rocky Mountain National Park and various other fisheries throughout Colorado and Wyoming. After a season guiding for trout and Pacific salmon on the Kanektok River in Alaska he moved back east to be closer to family and friends. Josh, his wife Eliza and their three daughters (Zoe, Isla & Ellie) live in the Bloomingdale neighborhood of Washington D.C. and enjoy spending time exploring the city and the diverse natural resources surrounding the metro area.
