HANCOCK, N.H. -- Have you always been interested in fishing, but didn't know where to begin? Here's a free chance to learn the basics, just in time for fishing season! The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department's Let's Go Fishing Program will offer a basic fishing class on Saturday, May 9, at the Harris Center for Conservation Education in Hancock, N.H.
The class is open to all; however, those 16 and under should be accompanied by an adult. Reserve your spot by contacting the Harris Center at 603-525-3394 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. The class is free, and registration is first-come, first-served. All equipment and materials will be provided. You do not need to have a fishing license to participate.
Participants will meet at the Harris Center at 9 a.m. to learn about equipment, safety, knot tying, fish identification, basic ecology and different casting techniques. In the afternoon, the group will head out to a nearby pond and put their newly learned fishing skills to the test!
