Share Your Love of Angling

This is Passport to Texas

You don’t have to be a great angler to be a great Angler Education Instructor. If you love the sport find joy in introducing young people to it—Texas Parks and Wildlife wants to hear from you.

09—In the instructor class, we give them all of the tools and the knowledge and skills they would need to teach kids the junior angler program.

Before retiring, Ann Miller coordinated the aquatic education program for TPW. She encourages any adult angler with time to share, to help kids learn to fish.

24—Many adults out there are anglers themselves, and really want to share that love of fishing with the younger generation. And this gives them the opportunity to do that. Many adults also are working already with different youth groups and our junior angler program is just a wonderful addition to their potpourri of things that they can do with kids.

Miller says she finds youth group leaders attracted to the Junior Angler program because of the positive on the children they mentor.

11—They do want to have a positive outlet for their energies and enthusiasm and, kids just love it. So, this is something that they can do to steer kids in the right direction.

Find information about the volunteer angler instructor program on the TPW website.

The Wildlife and Sport Fish Restoration Program supports our series and works to increase fishing and boating opportunities in Texas.
