Anyone with an interest in fishing is welcome to join the two-day, hands-on training course September 9 and 10, at the Lost Lake Woods Club Pavilion, in Lincoln, MI Program will start Friday afternoon and pick back up on Saturday. Participants will learn: angling skills, people and fish management, aquatic ecology, and tackle crafting.
