Register for Sept 22 Class to Become a Let’s Go Fishing Instructor
September 16, 2018
The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department is seeking volunteers to become ‘Let’s Go Fishing’ instructors to pass on Vermont’s fishing tradition to the next generation of Vermonters. The department will be hosting a one-day training workshop for new instructors on Saturday, September 22 at the ANR Annex Building, 190 Junction Rd., Berlin, Vermont.
The workshop is free, materials and lunch (the session runs from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.) will be provided. Register by calling 265-2279, or emailing email@example.com before Sept. 16.
Instructors in the ‘Let’s Go Fishing’ program organize and instruct clinics in their communities for young people and their families. Participants in the training workshop will learn how to teach a basic fishing clinic, as well as learn about fishing ethics, aquatic ecology, fisheries management, habitat conservation and tackle craft. They will also be introduced to conducting specialized fishing clinics, including clinics on ice fishing and species-specific fishing. Prospective instructors must be at least 18 years of age. The class is informal, and it is not necessary to have a high level of fishing expertise to become an instructor.
