Modern Fishing

August 17 @ 9:00 am - August 18 @ 5:00 pm

Go from zero fishing experience to confident fisherman, rigging poles and baiting a hook like it’s second nature in one weekend. Not only will you learn traditional fishing methods, we will cover sustenance fishing, providing a new perspective for even some of the most experienced fishermen. While many people know how to work a fishing pole, they haven’t honed a well-rounded set of skills to truly put enough food on the table if ever in a survival situation. Shave you’re learning curve by years in this high-intensity, information packed weekend that will provide you with a new mentality on fishing and help you capitalize on one of nature’s greatest hobbies. Techniques learned in modern fishing will translate from salt water to fresh water and students will leave with the knowledge and confidence to catch fish with modern day tackle.

DAY 1 – Learn fishing techniques in a classroom setting

DAY 2 – Put your techniques into practice in a day of guided fishing

Takeaways: Students will learn how to use different types of fishing poles, understanding the pros and cons of different lines. We will cover hook types and why you should always carry a modern hook, as well as what is included in a basic fishing kit, and what modern “survival” fishing gear to invest in. Students will learn sustenance fishing – understanding the circle of life fishing (catching your own bait that catches you bigger and tastier fish). Students will also learn about trotlines, hand lines, cast netting, modern survival gill nets, and fishing without an engine-powered boat.
