CONCORD, N.H. — An upcoming fly fishing program offers a chance to learn about the traditional and timeless sport of -fishing. The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department’s “Let’s Go Fishing” Program is hosting its “Fly-Fishing A-Z” on Saturday, May 6, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Sunday, May 7, from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Fish and Game Headquarters in Concord , N.H.

Designed primarily for first-time fly-anglers, the workshop will cover the basics of equipment, fly casting, stream ecology, knot tying, safety and fish identification on Saturday. On Sunday, we’ll pull on our waders and head out to a local fishing pond where students will put their new skills to the test!
