Fishing instructor workshop coming
FINDLAY - Spaces are available for a free workshop 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Oct. 27 for adults, groups or conservation clubs interested in becoming certified fishing instructors, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources Division of Wildlife.
Passport to Fishing is a one-day training program that qualifies individuals to become Division of Wildlife certified fishing instructors, similar to a hunter education instructor. Participants must pass a background check.
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 children and beginning anglers the basics of fishing.
To register or for more info, call (419) 429-8347.
