Monadnock Chapter of Trout Unlimited

Fly Tying is directly related to the education mission of the Monadnock Chapter of Trout Unlimited in southwestern New Hampshire.

  • We use fly tying to teach people about natural resources, entomology, and of course how trout relate to their primary food source.
  • We use fly tying as a social event, as a way to connect with youngsters and adults alike.
  • Most of all, we do it because it's fun as you can see in our ongoing projects and events.

Our 2016 Trout Camper

In 2016, the Chapter sent Spencer Hokanson to the Vermont Trout  Camp. Spencer then told the Christmas meeting about his experiences at the camp. He had a wonderful time and came back with a passion for fly fishing, tying and the work needed to preserve our cold water areas. Spencer is the latest of our Trout Campers and this year, the Chapter is sending another young person to the NH Trout Camp.
