Let's Go Fishing Volunteers


Let's Go Fishing volunteers are anglers who are skilled in basic fishing techniques. They are ethical, responsible outdoorsmen and women. They must be committed to passing on their knowledge and following the policies and procedures outlined by the N.H. Fish and Game Department. Once trained, volunteer instructors sign up to teach whole or parts of classes in the disciplines in which they've been trained.


How to Become a Let's Go Fishing Instructor

Applicant must:

  • be at least 18 years old
  • meet the qualifications on the Let's Go Fishing Volunteer Instructor Job Description
  • complete an application PDF Document and mail it in to the Program Coordinator
  • pass a criminal background check. (Automatic grounds for non-certification are a misdemeanor conviction or Fish and Game violation within seven years or any felony convictions.)
  • attend training
  • observe two classes in each discipline trained


Volunteer instructor applications are accepted on a year-round basis. All accepted applications will be placed on file until training is scheduled. New instructor training is typically offered once a year in late fall and early winter. When a training course becomes scheduled, all applicants will be notified. A complete training course consists of a minimum of two sessions (all applicants must attend Session 1):


  • Session 1 covers the ins and outs of the Fish and Game Department and Let's Go Fishing program's, policy and procedures and teaching practices.
  • Session 2 focuses on a specific program - basic, fly fishing, fly tying or ice fishing.
