FAQS about being a Let's Go Fishing Instructor

Is prior fishing experience needed to be an instructor?

Absolutely not! During the instructor training we start from the basics and work our way up so that all instructors are teaching the material at the same level.

How intensive is the instructor training process?

All instructors are inquired to participate on a one day in-person training. After the training all instructors must pass a mandatory background check.

Do instructors need to provide their own equipment?

No, all equipment is provided by the Let’s Go Fishing Program. Participants are welcome to bring their own if they prefer.
