CONCORD, NH — The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department’s Let’s Go Fishing Program is hosting its free “Fly-Fishing A-Z” workshop at two locations this spring. These two-day programs are designed primarily for first-time fly anglers. The program will cover the basics of equipment, fly casting, stream ecology, knot tying, safety, and fish identification. The highlight of this program will be on Sunday when we’ll pull on our waders and head out to a local fishing pond to put new skills to use.
Participants are required to attend both days of this no-cost program. All equipment is provided to the participants and no fishing license is required to participate.
Register online to reserve your spot. The class is open to anyone age 13 or older. Participants age 16 and under must be accompanied by an adult. The class space is limited, and registration is on a first-come, first-served basis.
