Become a certified youth fishing instructor

FINDLAY — Any adult, group, or conservation club interested in teaching fishing basics are encouraged to attend a workshop to become a certified Passport to Fishing instructor, according to the Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) Division of Wildlife.

A certification course is being offered on Thursday, March 19 at the Division of Wildlife District Two Office, located at 952 Lima Ave, Findlay 45840. Passport to Fishing is a one-day instructor training program that qualifies individuals to become Division of Wildlife certified fishing instructors, similar to a hunter education instructor.

This workshop will take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Participants are encouraged to bring a packed lunch and dress for the weather. It is free of charge, but preregistration is required by March 17, as space is limited. Interested individuals can register at Participants must complete a background check prior to registering.

Passport to Fishing was developed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and adopted by the Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation. Workshops teach volunteers the basics of fishing and how to run a four-station program within a fishing event. These instructors then go back to their communities, with a written curriculum and training aids, to teach children and beginning anglers the basics of fishing.

By becoming a certified instructor, you will be able to help in reconnecting students with the outdoors, as well as have the skills and resources to do so in a more successful way. Resources available include grants, equipment, publications and brochures, and training.
