Every teacher wishing to teach the curriculum of the "Fishing in Schools" program must be certified by an NFSP Certified Teacher Trainer. A teacher may take the training at any scheduled workshop in advance of his/her school/institution committing to the program.
These one day sessions are scheduled from time-to-time and are held in a variety of locations. The cost is $50 per person (credited against the cost of the program once acquired.) To sign up for a session, please fill out and submit the registration form below.

visited SJJA today and we had a great training
I have run a fly fishing program for years.
While I have had success on an individual basis with
teaching casting, this was the first time that I saw
15 students learn to fly fish within 45 minutes. I
was very impressed!
"Katie, the post-training survey did not quite cover enough about what a fantastic job you did for us in Reno on January 7. You are truly a great and I would feel personally insulted if you came to our area again and did not let me know so that we could get together for lunch/dinner, wet a line, etc...
This is a tremendous sportfishing area and there should be opportunity for NFSP to shine. I do hope so!Our conversation was warm, welcome, and informative.
Thank you (if for nothing else, helping to clean up my unsatisfactory casting stroke)."
