Become a TPWD Certified Angler Education Instructor.

This free workshop, led by the Dallas Fly Fishers, is open to anyone 18 or older interested in learning and teaching fishing skills in their communities. 

We provide all equipment and materials for the workshop. After certification, the program provides the curriculum, equipment (where available), materials and support to help you successfully introduce others to fishing. Ideal for fishing clubs, teachers, scout or youth group leaders, Parks and Recreation center staff, after school or camp staff and community volunteers. TEA-approved CPE credit is available for teachers.

Although most of the workshop will take place indoors, wear comfortable clothing and footwear for outdoor activities. Please bring a sack lunch and a water bottle, preferably reusable, sunglasses and a hat. 

There is no charge for the class, but there may be a $5 gate entrance fee.
