ELO Fishing

ELO Fishing

Students are able to discover the sport of fishing through a variety of experiences and opportunities in the Fishing ELO. This year, a student enrolled in this extended learning opportunity focused on the recreational sport of fishing. He has been able to explore a variety of areas directly related to the fishing industry. He has met with professional fishing guides, practiced fishing in a variety of bodies of water, taken a tour of a local fish hatchery, and learned skills specific to different types of fishing.

Strafford Learning Center is fortunate to have a staff with numerous skills in and outside of the classroom. As part of the Fishing ELO, this student was able to work one on one with one of our staff members, learning how to tie flies for fly fishing. The first day of tying flies involved a live demonstration of fly tying, followed by the student tying his first ever fly!
