CONCORD, NH –The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department’s Let’s Go Fishing Program is hosting its “Fly Fishing A-Z” program at two locations this spring. These weekend-long programs are designed primarily for first-time fly anglers and will cover the key basics including equipment, casting, stream ecology, knot tying, safety, and fish identification. The highlight of this two-day program will be on Sunday, when everyone pulls on waders and heads out to a local fishing pond where students will put their new skills to the test with instructors. Participants must attend both days of the program. All equipment is provided, no fishing license is required to participate, and there is no cost to attend this program.
