Christmas is over once again, it’s a new year, and perhaps it’s time to learn something new. Or check-off one of your new year’s resolutions. And you can do just that by joining in the fun at the Riverwood Conservancy this coming week, for a beginners lesson in fishing!

On Tuesday January 8th, you can head to Riverwood’s Chappell House at 7 PM, where instructor Pat Kelly will take you to the Credit River and kick-start his fishing 101 seminar.

Kelly will teach you about fishing opportunities in the Credit River watershed, as well as the rules and regulations that have to be followed when you’re out on the banks. You’ll learn what types of fish can be found in the area, as well as the best bait to use, time to catch them, and so on. According to Riverwood, “Fishing techniques will be demonstrated and the pros and cons of the various styles will be discussed. Do not bring worms or a frying pan!”
