'Let's Go Fishing' Program Seeks Instructors

BERLIN, Vt. - The Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department is seeking volunteers to become 'Let's Go Fishing' instructors to pass on Vermont's fishing tradition to the next generation of Vermonters. The department will be hosting a one-day training workshop for new instructors on Saturday, September 22 at the ANR Annex Building, 190 Junction Rd., Berlin, Vermont.

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, as well as learn 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 September 16 by calling 802-265-2279 or emailing [Please enable JavaScript to see this content].
