This past weekend I was at University of Scouting and there was a guy there talking about BSA's "Certified Angling Instructor" certification.  There is evidently a weekend-long course available that teaches scouters how to teach young scouts to fish and how to counsel Fishing, Fly Fishing, and Fish and Wildlife Mgmt merit badges.

Have any of y'all done this course?  If so, do you find it helps you out in your unit?

Sounds like a great opportunity to tap into some deep knowledge and passion!

Scouters who want to build up their fishing and teaching skills might also find support from their local parks or natural resources department.  In my area, there are "How to Teach Fishing" workshops that are completely free of charge, put on by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. (They specifically target scout leaders, teachers and camp staff among their audience).
