2017 Thad Wester Fishing School
Fri, Sep 29, 2017, 1:00 PM – Sun, Oct 1, 2017, 12:00 PM EDT
The Conservancy’s Fishing School began in 1983 and continues to generate great enthusiasm for fishing from beginners and seasoned pros alike. Founded by the Conservancy's first president, Thad Wester, this year's fishing school will hold a special place in the hearts of many due to Dr. Wester's passing in February 2017.
Now in its 34th year, the Fishing School offers a format that is as educational as it is enjoyable.

"The teachers were great and I learned a lot even though I have fished all my life. The interns did a wonderful job. The lunch, socials, and dinner were great. What a great event and way to meet people!!" —Brady Anderson
"I have a ton of passion for the parent/child partner involvement in Thad Wester’s Fishing School. I think that was part of his original intent...It’s so much more than just fishing. What a gift that I’ve been a part of that." - Steve Montgomery, Instructor
