The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department’s “Let’s Go Fishing” Program is hosting “Fly-Fishing A-Z” on Saturday, May 14, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at Fish and Game Headquarters in Concord and Sunday, May 15, from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. There is no charge for the class.
The class is open to anyone age 13 and over, however those 16 and under must be accompanied by an adult. Designed primarily for first-time fly-anglers, the workshop will cover the basics of equipment, fly casting, stream ecology, knot tying, safety and how to find those “hot spots” along New Hampshire’s rivers and lakes.
The highlight of the workshop will be Sunday, when anglers will pull on their waders and head out to a local fishing hole to put your newly learned skills to the test.
Participants should bring their own or borrowed equipment if they can. Rods are available for use; when registering, anglers should let Fish and Game know if equipment is needed.
Registration opens on Monday, April 11. Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis and limited to 25 participants. Registration forms will only be accepted via postal mail and must be received by Monday, May 2, to reserve a spot in the workshop. To sign up, visit www.fishnh.com.
