Casting and Angling.
Little, Mildred J.; Bunting, Camille
The self-contained packet contains background information, lesson plans, 15 transparency and student handout masters, drills and games, 2 objective examinations, and references for teaching a 15-day unit on casting and angling to junior high and senior high school students, either as part of a regular physical education program or as a club activity. An introductory section briefly discusses the recreational value of fishing, addresses the ethical concerns and responsibilities of fishermen, establishes unit goals and objectives, lists equipment types and sizes, and suggests additional print and film sources. The 50-minute lesson plans cover definitions for casting and angling; familiarization with rod and three types of reels; casting technique; knot tying; angling techniques; how to play and land a fish; use of fishing accessories; artificial lures; and cleaning, filleting, and skinning a fish. Each lesson plan outlines skills to be taught, teaching methods, activities, and references. The packet also contains diagrams and procedures for four casting drills and eight casting games (Plug Bombardment, Catfish, Crossing the Creek, Fish, Challenge, Obstacle Course, Jaws, and Plugolf), teaching hints, and additional unit possibilities for fly fishing, surf fishing, and lure and rod craft.
