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.


The monthly meetings of the 2021– 2022 Merrimack River Valley Chapter of Trout Unlimited are beginning October 12, 2021 and will run through May 2022.The Board of Directors has been working throughout the summer months to arrange interesting and varied monthly presentations on different subjects pertaining to fly fishing and cold water fisheries conservation. We’re also working on the MRVTU Newsletter. Stay tuned to this website with future meeting information and trout fishing info for our members. We have lined up a great list of presentations. 


The January 11 Swap Meet has been postponed. The new date is TBD. Please stay tuned for updates.

Our presenter on Tuesday, January 11 is Sean Smith, former President of Great Bay TU and a guide in New Hampshire from 2001-2010. 

While president of GBTU, Sean started New Hampshire’s first Trout Camp for Kids and fall one day clinic for Casting for Recovery. He is the author of Fly-Fishing New Hampshire’s Seacoast. Sean is generously donating copies for our raffle. This book primarily covers fishing the Exeter River, Lamprey, Cocheeco and Isinglass rivers year-round. Sean continues as a fly-fishing guide today and also as a professional photographer and a Customer Service Rep in the Orvis Outfitters Department. Many of the images in his book were created by him. Sean will welcome any and all questions about fly fishing and photography and his experiences guiding.

Sean currently lives in Thayer, Missouri after evacuating from Grand Isle, Louisiana and hurricane Ida.
