Driscol Health Plan employee’s were TPWD Angler Education Instructor Certified by Shane Wilson & Michael Scherer in IN PERSON and ON LINE ZOOM Sessions.

They called it “HOOK IT 2 COOK IT”

This was the results of what they did along side community sponsors, Fishing’s Future, and Fishing’s Future Family Fish Tank.

The participants went to various locations to learn about fishing. Once their cards were punched they moved over to the iCATCH Tank to try their luck at catching a fish, learn to cleanit, and then learn to cook it.
