HOFNOD Training in Alabama

Hooked on Fishing - Not on Drugs Logo

"Hooked On Fishing – Not On Drugs"® (HOFNOD) uses a mentor-based fishing program to teach positive life choices. This one-day class provides the skills needed to lead a mentor-based fishing program that will make a difference in children’s lives. Science teachers, physical education teachers, counselors, Boys and Girls Club workers, bass club members, parks and recreation department employees, and volunteers are invited to improve the lives of youth through HOFNOD skills. Check back here for future training.

The one-day training session will give volunteers activities and lessons to help children make appropriate decisions and learn to become ethical anglers. Workshop participants will also learn how to teach fishing and conduct stewardship activities. Pictures of previous Alabama HOFNOD are available on this Web site. HOFNOD programs require youth to:

  1. learn about making good life choices through role-playing and other training;
  2. participate in at least one fishing experience;
  3. participate in at least one stewardship activity.

Workshop participants will become certified HOFNOD instructors and have the ability to use the "Hooked On Fishing - Not On Drugs® name and logo.

"Hooked On Fishing – Not On Drugs®" is a partnership program among the Future Fisherman Foundation, the Alabama Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries Division, and volunteers.
