Great Fishing Basics(Fresh Water), aka Drowning Worms 101


Fishing Basics consists of a Power Point presentation and a Instructor’s Guide to teach fresh water fishing. 


It is appropriate for Cubs, Scouts and Venture Scouts.  This is hands on, group participation program which takes from an hour to an hour and a half to present.

The program is designed to give a student who has never fished the skills and knowledge, both practical and ethical, to go to a pond and be immediately successful. 

It is expected that the instructor will schedule a follow up fishing trip to a pond to allow the Scouts to apply what they have learned.  FISH ON!

The Instructor’s Guide gives the leader a road map to present the course.  A materials list is included at the end of the Instructor’s Guide
