‘Let’s Go Fishing’ program seeks instructors - Training workshop set for April 22


The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department is seeking volunteers who would like to become ‘Let’s Go Fishing’ instructors so they can pass on the fishing tradition to Vermonters both young and old. The department will be hosting a one-day training workshop for new instructors on Sunday, April 22 at the Essex Regional Office, 111 West St. Essex, VT.

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, in addition to learning 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. The class is informal, and it is not necessary to have a high level of fishing expertise to become an instructor.

“Becoming an instructor will give you the opportunity to introduce Vermonters both young and old to the joys of fishing, while teaching them all they need to know to enjoy a day on the water,”
said Corey Hart, Education Specialist with Vermont Fish & Wildlife.

There is no charge for the training, and all curriculum materials, as well as lunch, will be provided.

The workshop runs from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Pre-registration is required, and you must be 18 years of age to participate.

Those interested can register through April 15 by calling 802-265-2279 or emailing letsgofishing@vermont.gov.

I worked with the MA version of the program for a lot of years and I can honestly say I had a blast doing it. I guess there are reasons but I never understood why some states don't have a program like this.
