Cast A Fly, Catch A Student

The National Fishing in Schools Program is a nationwide, in school program, that teaches the positive lifetime activity of fishing to students in middle schools and high schools. NFSP educates students about fish, insects, aquatic environment, resource stewardship and conservation using fishing, and learning the skill of casting, as the instructional tool.

The idea of the program is to lead to:
- moderate to vigorous physical activity
- better understanding & respect for the outdoors
- increased awareness of our environment & natural resources

The clever catchphrase is "Cast A Fly, Catch A Student"

NFSP works in cooperation with state education and fish and wildlife agencies and a network of groups interested in teaching our youth how to fish in schools.
