Fishing class
Fishing Program (Merrimack)

Fishing is a great sport for both young and old.  Each spring (last session) and fall (first session) we hold a fishing class.  The fishing classes that I run are a bit different from others that have been held.  We don't just run out on day one and cast lines into the water hoping for a nibble.  The kids who attend the class first spend an afternoon (2 hours) learning some of the basic ins and outs of fishing.  They learn basic knots, how to attach a hook, how to attach a sinker (and why).  Ditto bobbers, lures, etc.  They then learn a bit about the fishing poles and reels that they are using.  They also learn how to attach bait.  Lastly they learn casting techniques, learning how to cast for distance, cast at targets, over head, side casting and even under-hand casing (to get under those low hanging branches.

We finish up the first afternoon with a casting contest where each student attempts to cast their line into a coffee can from a distance, with prizes given for the most accurate casts.  

After this first class we are now ready to go fishing!  We go to different places around Merrimack and Nashua.  Often the site we fish at determines the type of fish we will be catching and I go over methods of catching different types of fish (pan fish, trout, bass, etc), depending on where we are fishing.  It is my hope that this session will allow us to explore two new things that we have never done before: 1) Fishing with minnows, and 2) Fishing from a boat in Natticook Lake.  I will keep everyone posted on these items.

On the left is a photo album of the many pictures from this session.  I will do my best to photo photo's from each week of the session.  The photo's will be loaded in chronological order (meaning the newest pictures will be on the bottom).  Click this link to get to the most recent pictures.

If you see a photo of your child or their rocket that you would like, send me an email with the filename of the photo and I can send you a high resolution version of the picture, suitable for framing.  

Enjoy this photo album!  Click on a thumbnail on the left to get a full size image in this panel.
