Most of us have had a mentor at some point in our lives that inspired us, taught us, and delighted in our successes. It’s a wonderful thing, but not everyone is so lucky, especially when it comes to having an outdoor mentor. By becoming a volunteer certified angler instructor through the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism’s Angler Education program, you’ll not only have an avenue for sharing your passion for angling with others but you too could be someone’s mentor.


Topics covered will include



  • Fishing Regulations

  • Species Identification

  • Fishing Ethics

  • Equipment

  • Knot-tying

  • Casting

  • Backyard Bass Game

  • Fish Habitat

  • Aquatic Nuisance Species

  • Conservation Practices


Apart from becoming a certified angler education instructor, attendees will also be given valuable information regarding working with children, sample curriculums, and tips for preparing a class or clinic. 


Participants must be 18 years old and pass a background check prior to certification.


Youth between the ages of 12 and 17 with a signed parental form can also take the workshop and gain Junior Assisting Angler Volunteer status. This age group must work with a certified instructor when hosting an aquatic education activity, clinic, derby or outreach. 


Space is limited to 25 students and will fill up fast. To register please email Chris Biggs at chris.biggs@live.com or call his cell at (785)307-0726. Tight Lines Everyone!
