The course, taught by avid fisherman and experienced instructor Captain McGrath, is designed to educate novices as well as the more advance anglers in all areas of fish finding, bait and lure selection, chumming, fishing locales and ?hot? spots, anchoring, tackle selection, knot and rig tying, and safety. Students will be treated to the extensive use of audio-visual materials including slides, overhead transparencies, videotapes, and detailed computerized handouts.
