WANTED: Experienced Anglers to Teach "Let's Go Fishing" Classes
CONCORD, N.H. - Do you love to fish? Put your experience to work and pass on your passion for fishing by becoming an instructor in the Let's Go Fishing program, an initiative of the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department. Fish and Game currently is seeking experienced anglers to teach all aspects of fishing to youth and adults through this popular program in which volunteer teachers offer instruction on basic fishing skills, fly fishing, salt water fishing and ice fishing.
A free training session for new instructors takes place Saturday, March 15, from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at N.H. Fish and Game headquarters, 2 Hazen Drive in Concord. Lunch will be provided. For information, or to sign up for the training, call Lisa at (603) 271-3212.
"Becoming a fishing instructor can be your gift back to the sport you love," said Mark Beauchesne, Let's Go Fishing program coordinator at N.H. Fish and Game. "Somebody gave his or her time to teach you. Here's your chance to return the favor."
The Let's Go Fishing instructor training provides the skills needed to teach fishing to a diverse audience. After completing the workshop, participants have the opportunity to join an existing team of volunteer instructors who present programs across the state. Instructor applications will be available the day of the training.
The Let's Go Fishing program teaches the skills and ethics of fishing and introduces thousands of people each year to an outdoor activity that fosters good stewardship of New Hampshire's aquatic resources. The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department works to conserve, manage and protect the state's fish and wildlife and their habitats, as well as providing the public with opportunities to use and appreciate these resources.
