Love to fish?

Help teach others

CONCORD — The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department’s “Let’s Go Fishing” program is in need of avid anglers looking to give back to their community and share their love of fishing. The program needs volunteer instructors to teach ice fishing, fly fishing or basic fishing to youth and adults.

Registration has opened for instructor training sessions, a requirement for becoming certified as a Let’s Go Fishing instructor. Training is free.

To sign up, print and return an application form from fishnh.com/Fishing/lets_go_fishing_volunteers.htm, or call 271-3212 or email aquatic-ed@wildlife.nh.gov. Applications must be received by Wednesday, Nov. 21, to reserve a spot in the trainings.

Those being certified must attend both an overview training session and at least one specialty training class. The overview session will cover the ins and outs of the N.H. Fish and Game Department and the Let’s Go Fishing program, as well teaching practices and principles.

The specialty sessions focus on the specific programs presented —ice fishing, fly fishing, or basic fishing; these are hands-on experiences where prospective instructors are put through an abbreviated “real life” Let’s Go Fishing course. Topics covered include ethics, pond ecology, rules and regulations, equipment and safety.
