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.
Tuesday Night Meeting Cancelation Notice
Due to the impending Nor’easter they are predicting for Tuesday into Wednesday the March 14th meeting and presentation has been canceled.
We feel that having Tom and Dan Harrison driving from western of Massachusetts in the height of the storm would not be safe and practical.
We will try our best to get this presentation rescheduled in the near future.

Fly Fishing Workshop Series – 2017 Schedule
“Let’s Go Fly Fishing for Trout” is a series of classes designed to introduce people to the “quiet sport” of fly fishing. The classes are designed for beginners as well as people that want to expand their fly fishing skills.
There is no charge for the classes, however space is limited and pre-registration is required. Families with children 10 years of age and older are encouraged to register and participate. Class topics will include equipment, flies, cold water fisheries, strategies, fly tying and fly casting.
Although the course focuses on coldwater fish (i.e. trout and salmon), the basic skills are applicable to fly fishing for bass, panfish and saltwater fish species.
All materials are provided from fly tying equipment to fly rods and reels. Classes are a combination of lecture, discussion, hands-on, demonstrations and multimedia presentations.
A Fly Casting Instruction session for all students will be held on Saturday, May 6, 2017 from 9 – 11am at Lake Massabesic. Rods will be provided.
The course is sponsored and supported by Merrimack River Valley Chapter of Trout Unlimited. Instructors are certified by the Fish and Game Department “Let’s Go Fishing” program and are members of the Merrimack River Valley Chapter of Trout Unlimited.
