The BOW Kayak Fishing Weekend Workshop is intended for experienced kayakers with some spin fishing experience who want to learn to fish from their kayak. You’ll learn how to rig your kayak for fishing; kayak fishing techniques – casting, using lures, bait and trolling; fishing equipment and tackle; and what to do when you catch a fish. Participants must supply their own spin casting rod and kayak.

There is also space remaining for participants in the NH BOW Fall Weekend, September 10-12 in Holderness. Visit for workshop info and registration materials.
