Spots Still Open for Kayak Fish and Float Workshop at Fayetteville Education Center

Apr 2

Fishing from a kayak takes a special set of skills that many anglers would like to develop. If you’re one of them, don’t miss out on the free “Kayak Fish and Float Workshop,” — a full-day workshop that combines the healthy activity of kayaking with the relaxing sport of fishing.

Spots are still open for the workshop, which will be held at the John E. Pechmann Fishing Education Center in Fayetteville on April 14 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

With the help of Mark Patterson, of the N.C. Kayak Fishing Association, and Capt. Jerry Dilsaver, participants will learn how to rig their gear while in a kayak and learn fishing basics for bass, mackerel and assorted panfishes. 

The workshop, which will also feature demonstrations of popular fishing kayaks, is a partnership between the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission and the Great Outdoor Provision Company and Get Outdoors of Greensboro.

Participants must pre-register and pay a refundable fee of $25. The fee is refunded in full after the participant completes the course.

“We’re requiring the pre-registration fee to estimate attendance in advance and prepare for the workshop,” said Tom Carpenter, a fisheries technician with the Commission and workshop coordinator. “But the event was always meant to be free, which is why we will refund the $25 to everyone who attends.”

To register or for more information about the workshop, call Carpenter at 910-868-5003, ext. 15, or email him at
