Training offered for ‘Let’s Go Fishing’ instructors
BERLIN — 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, Sept. 22 at the ANR Annex Building, 190 Junction Rd., in Berlin.
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.
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 p.m. Pre-registration is required, and you must be 18 years of age to participate. Those interested can register through Sept. 16 by calling 802-265-2279 or emailing [email protected]
