Pilot Training of National Recreation and Park Association Members in Fishing, Fly Fishing, Fly Tying, Canoeing and Kayaking through a Grant from the Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation

Participants of the 2006 NRPA Training in Alabama for Fishing, Fly Fishing, Canoeing and Kayaking
A special thanks to Jim Stewart of RBFF, lower right, who took almost all the pictures.

NRPA Members learned about starting a kayaking or canoeing program.

Many NRPA members want to have a fishing program.

Fly fishing
, which was new to many of the NRPA participants, was taught by Mat Wilhelm, Federation of Fly Fishers.

Aquatic ecology
is an important part of a fishing program.  Doug Darr and Maurice Jackson discuss the differences between a largemouth bass and a spotted bass.

Fly tying
, something that all participants achieved some success, was taught by Bryant Davis from Maine.

Everyone seemed to enjoy Lay Lake, even in January.

A great blue heron heads to the other side of the Lay Lake.


The Alabama 4-H Center was fabulous.

Bob caught the largest fish using sporting methods, an Alabama spotted bass.

The Pioneer Village Pond gave us a quality location to try practical fishing and fly fishing skills.
