Trout Unlimited is a national organization dedicated to protecting and improving cold water fishing resources. Our local chapter is a key building block and our local members volunteer their time, money and energy to improving cold-water fishing resources in New Hampshire. Almost all members love fly fishing, and related activities, such as fly tying.

Hi Fellow MRVTU members.
2022/2023 was quite a year with the Chapter involved in a number of activities. We once again had a full complement of speakers including Scott Biron, Master Fly Tier, Joe Destasio and Gabe Winant from TU NH talking about Brennan Dam removal and other trout habitat activities in NH, Dave Perry, talked about his experiences fishing for NH Wild Trout, and many other speakers as well.
We Hosted our first annual Fly Fishing Swap Meet, with plans to repeat a much improved version in January 2024. George Rollend and I held a fly tying class at the Henniker Elementary School. It was a blast for us, the students and Ms. Richardson. Shout out to Stone River for donating all the tying materials. We were pleasantly surprised at the participation and interest in fly tying. This class also participates in the Trout in the Classroom program. Financially we can report the Chapter is in excellent health, thanks to the efforts of John McMaster, Ted Norris and the support of the Board. We’re also talking about another group fishing expedition TBD location and date and more speakers that we hope you all find interesting. If you have someone you think the membership would enjoy pass them along and we will try to schedule them.
