Spaces Still Available For Certified Fishing Instructor Workshop in Findlay
Registration is still being accepted for Passport to Fishing Workshop on May 24
FINDLAY, OH – Spaces are still available for adults, groups, or conservation clubs who have a sincere interest in taking kids fishing and want to become certified fishing instructors. A free workshop is available on Tuesday, May 24, 2011 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and will take place at Wildlife District Two, 952 Lima Ave., Findlay, Ohio, 45840.
Passport to Fishing is a one-day instructor training program that qualifies individuals to become Division of Wildlife certified fishing instructors, similar to a hunter education instructor.
Passport to Fishing was developed by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service and adopted by the Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation. Workshops teach volunteers the basics of fishing and how to run a four-station fishing program with a fishing event. These instructors then go back to their communities, with a written curriculum and training aids, to teach youngsters and beginning anglers the basics of fishing.
By becoming a certified instructor, you will not only be able to help in reconnecting students with the outdoors, but you will also have the skills and resources to help you do it in a more successful way. Resources available include grants, equipment, brochures, and training.
To register for the workshop, please call Linda at 419-429-8347.
