Have you read about all of our fishing adventures and wished you knew how to fish? Well here is your chance. We will be giving a Fishing 101 class to show you everything you need to know to have the skill and confidence to get out there and catch some fish.
In this class you will learn how to pick a bait and get your pole set up. How to tie fishing knots, cast, read the water, slip bobber rigs, wolf river rigs, throw crank baits, how to clean fish and much much more…. After this class you will be able to go out and catch everything from blue gills to salmon. We will show how to handle fish, take the hook out, work with live and artificial bait,
There will be multiple instructors on site to help you. You will also receive a fishing rod and reel for you to keep and take home. You will be able to go out the next day and put what you learned into action.
The fee for the class is $100. This includes, a membership in WI Women Fish, all the instruction, lunch and a rod and reel to take home with you. If you are already a member the fee is $75. The class will be held rain or shine as we reserved a shelter at the park.
The date of the class is the same weekend that WI has a free fishing weekend so you do not need a fishing license. Great news if you are coming from out of state. Class size is limited. To register, complete the forms on the web site and mail them in with your fee. We are able to offer a partial scholarships for this class if there is a need. Our funds are extremely limited as all of our operating expenses come from member dues but we never want money to be a barrier for women to get out fishing. Please only request a scholarship if you really need it. We want to help those in need but our funds are limited. Class is filled by post mark dates. First come first server.
