Casting Equipment. Casting and Angling Skills Series. Instructor Manual.
Staton, Robert D., Jr.
Part of a series of self-contained instructional units designed by the Missouri Department of Conservation to teach Missourians how to use outdoor resources wisely and skillfully, the instructor manual, the first in the casting and angling series, is intended both as a reference book on casting equipment and as an introduction to the sport. Although primarily directed toward the classroom teacher, the manual may be adapted for use by other youth groups as well. An introduction notes the educational goals and objectives of the manual and contains a discussion of the concerns and responsibilities of those who use Missouri waters for sport fishing. The manual includes the information necessary to teach the basics of freshwater casting equipment (history, hooks, reels, rods, lines), nomenclature, the tying of basic knots, and the selection of appropriate equipment. The discussion is illustrated with black and white drawings. The basic information is further organized into four 50-minute class presentations, each with a purpose, methodology, necessary instructional aids and facilities, an outline of the presentation, appropriate exercises, and a final examination and skill test. A glossary, bibliography, and student handouts complete the manual. (SB)
