Hook and Hunting: Recreation 101 - Northern Michigan's News Leader

Hook and Hunting: Recreation 101

Posted: Updated:

How many activities have you wanted to try but just didn't have the equipment necessary to do so?

The DNR has noticed it's a problem for a lot of people and offer their Recreation 101 classes to help.

Earlier this week, kids from Saginaw took a field trip to Wilson State Park in Harrison to get hands on instruction in fly fishing.

Classes like this are offered throughout the year, across all Michigan state parks and are open to people of all ages, not just students.

A hobby like fly fishing is a perfect example of a sport you may want to try but don't want to invest money blindly.
