Become A Certified Youth Fishing Instructor

December 13, 2013
Ohio Valley Outdoors

AKRON, OH Ohio Division of Wildlife will host several free workshops in 2014 where attendees will become certified Passport to Fishing instructors. All workshops are scheduled from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Wildlife District Three, 912 Portage Lakes Drive, Akron.

Dates are as follows: 1/21, 3/16, 4/16, 6/7, 9/9, 11/6.

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.
