Enjoy Fishing. Learn New Skills. Catch Dinner?
This class will expose our students to a variety of fishing styles. Along with fishing in different locations, we will discuss the best type of bait and equipment for each habitat. Our activities will vary from making lures that mimic natural prey, constructing nets, and how to properly cook the fish that we catch. Each meeting we will have a science based lesson, and then we hit the water to use that information to fish as productively as possible!
