REGISTRATION OPEN FOR NEW ANGLER INSTRUCTOR PROGRAM
July 25, 2013
Anglers interested in becoming certified to teach fishing techniques in Kansas can still sign up for Aug. 10 class
PRATT– A joint effort of the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism and Fishing’s Future, the Kansas Angler Education Program will enlist qualified volunteer instructors to teach fishing techniques throughout the state. And with just a little more than two weeks left, the registration period will close soon.
Anglers interested in registering for the Aug. 10 class can sign up by visiting fishingsfuture.org and clicking “upcoming events,” then “Kansas Angler Education Training Program.” The first class will be held at the Great Plains Nature Center, 6232 E. 29th Street North in Wichita, from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
Although the class is not a requirement to teach, those in attendance will be given sample curriculums, valuable information regarding working with children, and how to prepare for a class or clinic. Other subjects covered in the four-hour class include current fishing rules and regulations, species identification, fishing ethics, equipment, knot-tying, casting, fish habitat, aquatic nuisance species, and conservation.
