Local Fishermen Share Knowledge

The school’s program will use multidisciplinary learning methods to teach the art of fishing. For starters, students will learn how ancient fishermen were able to fish using a bottle, wood, and a yoyo as fishing equipment. All ages are accepted at the school so children and adults can take classes. Also, many of the area’s best local fishermen have agreed to share their professional knowledge about fishing with students. Many local businesses will be supporting the PV sportfishing school as well. Once a student progresses and learns the basics, the students will then start fishing on the beach. Once they have mastered the required skills, they will be able to go fishing at sea.
