Beyond BOW Kayak Fishing Class for Women, June 12-14, 2009
CONCORD, N.H. -- Women interested in learning how to fish from a kayak can sign up this month for a new "Beyond B.O.W" Kayak Fishing Weekend Workshop, which will be held June 12-14, 2009, at Purity Spring Resort in Madison, New Hampshire. The workshop brochure is available now at www.nhbow.com. Registration will open on April 13. The workshop is part of the Becoming an Outdoors-Woman (B.O.W.) program, which is sponsored by the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department and the New Hampshire Wildlife Federation.
The goal of this course is to introduce attendees to fishing from a kayak. This event is for experienced kayakers with some spin fishing experience. Some of the topics that will be covered during the weekend are: rigging your kayak for fishing; fishing techniques - casting, using lures, bait and trolling; fishing equipment and tackle; what to do when you catch a fish; and safety. Attendees must supply their own spin casting rod and kayak.
The cost for the weekend is $275, which includes instruction, program materials, use of some equipment, all meals on Saturday, breakfast and lunch on Sunday and lodging at Purity Spring Resort. Women must be age 18 or older to participate.
A printable registration form and workshop description can be downloaded at www.nhbow.com; to request an application by mail, call (603) 271-3212 or email Lisa.M.Collins@wildlife.nh.gov. Register early, because the workshop is limited to 15 participants and is expected to fill quickly.
