Responsible Angling Education
Our programs range from 2-8 weeks long during the school year and summer with children ages 5-18 years old in multiple locations. In these classes, experienced youth volunteers teach the children the basics of the sport. Also, the volunteers instruct on how to enjoy the sport in a more responsible manner by utilizing certain techniques, understanding local rules & regulations, and using more environmentally friendly materials.
Core topics taught include: invasive species, overfishing, ocean pollution, marine conservation, coastal habitats, and many more. Participants are also taught basic fishing knots, how to cast a fishing rod properly, and about what to carry in their tackle box.
At the end of each program, we host a graduation party usually coinciding with a field trip such as to a local pier, lake, nature center, or deep sea fishing trip. This unique experience, usually a first for many of the kids, is followed by a catered meal at which certificates and new fishing equipment are gifted to each graduate.
