Become a TPWD Certified Angler Education Instructor

This free workshop is open to anyone 18 or older interested in teaching fishing skills in their communities. The program provides the curriculum, equipment (where available), materials and support to help volunteers successfully introduce youth and their families to fishing. Ideal for teachers, scout or youth group leaders, afterschool or camp staff and community volunteers. TEA-approved CPE credit is available for teachers. Participants should wear warm, comfortable clothing for outdoor activities, wear a hat, sunglasses and bring a sack lunch and water bottle, preferably reuseable.

Conventional Fishing certification will be taught from 10:00 to 4:00 with the optional fly fishing component from 4:00 to 6:00. We will take a 30 minute lunch (bring a sack lunch).
