Idaho is known for some great fishing. But, if you’ve never fished, how do you begin?
Not to worry. Idaho State University’s (ISU) Continuing Education and Workforce Training (CEWT) Classes are available to help you with just about anything you want to learn…and that includes fishing!
On Tuesday, September 8, CEWT is offering, ‘Introduction to Fly Fishing.’ The online course description states:
Perfect for those looking to break into the sport of fly fishing, but don’t know where to start. Learn about the different types of flies, basic knots and rigging as well as casting and presentation techniques. The class will conclude with a morning of fishing. Students are responsible for their own transportation.
- Fly Rod
- Fly Reel
- Fly Line
- Baseball cap or other brimmed hat
- Shoes with closed toes
That’s not the only fishing course available, though. On Tuesday, September 22, CEWT is offering, ‘How to Catch Fish in Southeast Idaho & Everywhere Else.’ The online course description states:
In this class, students will be learning about some key species of freshwater fish available in Southeastern Idaho, as well as how to find and catch them. The class will cover knots and rigging, location basics, feeding habits, and how to “read” water. At the end of the class, there will be a Saturday trip to a nearby lake or river for an afternoon of fishing, so students can begin to apply their new skills in the real world. Students are responsible for their own transportation.
So, if you’ve wanted to learn how to get in on Idaho’s great fishing, be sure to check out the above offerings.
