From the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department

CONCORD, N.H. -- An upcoming two-day workshop in Haverhill offers beginners a chance to learn about the timeless sport of fly-fishing. The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department’s “Let’s Go Fishing” Program is teaming up with the Haverhill Recreation Department to host a fly-fishing course on Saturday, June 23, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Sunday, June 24, from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Haverhill Recreation Department. There is no charge for the instruction.

To sign up or get more information, call the Haverhill Recreation Department at 603-787-6096.; The class is open to anyone age 13 and older, however, those age 13-16 must be accompanied by an adult. Class space is limited, and registration will be conducted on a first-come, first-served basis.

Designed primarily for first-time fly-fishers, the workshop will cover the basics of equipment, fly casting, stream ecology, knot tying, safety and how to find those “hot spots” along New Hampshire’s rivers and lakes. On Sunday, the class will pull on waders and head out to a local pond to put their newly learned skills to the test!


Over the past ten years, the N.H. Fish and Game Department’s “Let's Go Fishing” program has taught thousands of children and adults to be safe, ethical and successful anglers. The program is federally funded through the Sport Fish Restoration Program.


The New Hampshire Fish and Game Department works to conserve, manage and protect the state's fish and wildlife and their habitats, as well as providing the public with opportunities to use and appreciate these resources. Visit http://www.fishnh.com
