In the basic fishing course you will explore the skills and equipment needed and resources available to you to start your journey to becoming an angler. Topics covered in this course include basic rods and reels, safety, knot tying, fish identification, ethics, rules and regulations, and aquatic ecology. After completing a classroom session you'll get the chance to put your new skills to the test; you'll head out to a local pond and do some fishing!
Participants must attend all sessions, and provide their own transportation to the fishing field trip location (local pond that will be announced). No fishing license is required and all equipment will be supplied.
