Spaces Still Available for Youth Fishing Instructors to be Certified at Akron Workshop

 

AKRON, OH – Spaces are still available for those who wish to become certified Passport to Fishing instructors. A workshop is scheduled from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Wildlife District Three, 912 Portage Lakes Drive, Akron on Tuesday, January 21, 2014

Workshops are free but pre-registration is required as seating is limited; call Ken Fry, Division of Wildlife at (330) 245-3030.  Participants will be required to participate in a background check.

By becoming certified instructors, attendees will help connect students with the outdoors. Resources available to instructors include grants, equipment, brochures, and training.

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.
