As summer draws to a close, so does the lake-based 2013 Learn to Fish program. There are still a few opportunities to take part in one of these hands-on instructional sessions, designed to get new anglers of all ages fishing with confidence. FFSBC has a full list of Learn to Fish program dates and locations available on their website (please note that some sessions require pre-registration). Participants will learn to identify local fish species, set up tackle, how to cast, safe fish handling, and more. No more 2013 sessions in your area? FFSBC runs the program year round from their visitor centre at the Fraser Valley Trout Hatchery in Abbotsford. You can also check out the information in the Learn to Fish program guide . Happy angling! HCTF has been a major funder of the Learn to Fish program since 2007. Last year, over 25,000 youth took part in one of 800 sessions offered in locations across BC.
