Beginners Weekend Fly-Fishing Programs

Concord, NH – The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department’s Let’s Go Fishing Program will be hosting its “Fly-Fishing A-Z” workshop at two different locations this spring. These two-day programs are designed primarily for first-time fly anglers. The instruction will cover the basics of equipment, fly casting, stream ecology, knot tying, safety, and fish identification. The highlight of these events happens on Sunday when the group dons waders and gets onto the water at a local fishing pond to put their new skills to use.

Participants are required to attend both days of this no-cost program. All equipment is provided to participants. No fishing license is required to participate.

Register online to reserve your spot. The class is open to anyone age 13 or older. Participants age 16 and under must be accompanied by an adult. Class space is limited, and registration is on a first-come, first-served basis.
