This is a workshop based on the Project F.I.S.H. philosophy of hands-on, multiple-contact sportfishing and aquatic resource education. We will offer activities in Aquatic Ecology, Tackle Crafting, People and Fish Management and actual Angling Skills. Participants will leave with curriculum activities, equipment, fishing rod & reel, and access to supplies and resources to begin a successful fishing program/club with youth in the classroom or in an after-school setting.

This workshop is possible through support and partnerships from the USG, the BOSCH Community Fund, and donors to Project F.I.S.H. This training is also supported by Michigan State University Extension, Michigan Sea Grant, the Northeast Michigan Great Lakes Stewardship Initiative network, and the NOAA BWET-supported “Our Fisheries, Our Future” project.
