Registration Opens for North Country Learn to Fly-Fishing Workshop NH

Here's a chance to learn how to fly fish  while enjoying a visit to beautiful northern New Hampshire.  The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department's  "Let's Go Fishing" Program and the New Hampshire Division of Parks and  Recreation are teaming up to present "The North Country Experience," a  beginning fly-fishing weekend course that will take place on June 2-3, 2012, at  Coleman State Park in Stewartstown, N.H.   There is no charge for the training. The course is open to anyone age 13  and older, however, those 16 and under must be accompanied by an adult.

Registration is now open for this course. To sign up, you  must print out and return the registration form, which is available on the Fish  and Game  Registration forms can also be requested by  calling 603-271-3212 or emailing aquatic-ed@wildlife.nh.gov.

If you are interested, please sign up as soon as  possible, because class space is limited, and registration is conducted on a  first-come, first-served basis.   Registration forms must be received by May 21, 2012. You will be  notified if you are registered or have been placed on the waiting list.

Designed primarily for first-time fly-fishers, the  weekend workshop will cover the basics of equipment, fly casting, stream  ecology, knot tying, safety and how to find those "hot spots" along New  Hampshire's rivers and lakes.  The  highlight of the two days will be Sunday, when the class will pull on waders  and head out to Little Diamond Pond to put their newly learned skills to the  test!  Participants should plan to bring  their own or borrowed equipment.  A  limited number of rods will be available for use; please indicate on the  registration form if you will need to borrow equipment.

Non-local participants are expected to make their own  arrangements for overnight accommodations; camping is available by reservation  at Coleman State Park, and there are also motels and lodges available in the  area.
