The Icebreaker

Icebreaker 2018 Featured Speakers Jacquie and Tucker

Save the date for January 13, 2018 

The Icebreaker is our annual conference with great guest speakers, fly tying demos, conservation partner displays, a silent auction, and great bucket raffle prizes!

It’s our big fundraiser of the year, so come learn something and maybe win some great new gear, all to support your local cold water fisheries.


We are excited to announce that our Icebreaker keynote speakers will be Tucker and Jacquie Nelson from Nelson Spring Creek Ranch in Livingston, MT.

The Nelson’s were recently featured in The Drake magazine. They share a deep passion for fishing, stewardship and teaching others. We will share much more about the Nelsons over the next few months and look forward to seeing you on Saturday, January 13.

The Icebreaker will once again be at American Family Insurance on the east side of Madison!
