Basic Fishing. Aquatic Skills Series. Instructor Manual.
Staton, Robert D., Jr.
Part of a series of self-contained instructional units to teach Missourians how to use outdoor resources wisely and skillfully, this module of the Aquatic Skills Series introduces the basics of sport fishing using spin-casting equipment. The instructor may modify the module to meet the individual needs of class members based on age, experience level, and the time available. The material covers ethics, fisheries management, casting, special casts and situations, knowledge of fish and their surroundings, bait and lure selection, fishing skills other than casting, basic first aid for sport fishing, and cleaning and preparing the catch. The discussion is illustrated with black and white drawings. The basic information is organized into 14 50-minute class presentations, each with a purpose, methodology, necessary instructional aids and facilities, an outline of the presentation, appropriate exercises, and a final skill test. Student Handout pages are included that may be reproduced by instructors for classroom use. A glossary, bibliography, and four activities complete the manual. (ERB)
