New Anglers


Fishing  is a classic outdoor pastime - a great way to get fresh air, connect with nature, and even a chance to "eat local"! But where to start? Thankfully the Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC has some fantastic programs for new anglers. The Learn to Fish program is a great introductory program for 5 - 15 year olds (and their parents).
