Connecticut Aquatic Resources Education (CARE)
(Video - 5-1/2 minutes)
This video introduces viewers to the CARE Family Fishing Course. The topics are presented in a fun and informative way by interviews with children and adults at Connecticut fishing events and talking fish. If you are just starting out or even if you are an experienced angler, you will want to sign up for these free classes
. The CARE Instructors will share their techniques and secrets to help you catch more fish!
This video introduces viewers to ice fishing – a social, wintertime sport. Learn how to catch a bass, pickerel or yellow perch on a tip-up or jig pole! This video will get you interested in attending one of our Family Ice Fishing classes or attending one of the fishing events we organize on the ice each winter. All are fun, hands-on and great for scouts, youth groups, family and friends.
CARE will introduce you, your family, and friends to the wonders of water, fish, and fishing. Expert Instructors pass along information and expertise they’ve gained while angling in many waters for many years. DVDs, demonstrations, and activities make learning fun for adults and kids alike. Many times they’ll even take you on a fishing trip! View a list of upcoming CARE classes

Courses include discussions on where to fish, what bait to use, and safety around water. Information on ecology and the environment also make it easier for you to find fish in the habitats they prefer. Some courses are comprehensive and meet several times. Others are short and may cover specific topics, like ice fishing. Summer Fishing classes are offered to kids in day camps when school is out. CARE lessons are even taught in many school classrooms.
CARE volunteers offer time and expertise as a service to communities where they live. Over 2,000 of them have donated the work of 45 full-time employees! CARE Instructors have taught 150,000 people so far, and continue to lead courses and events for thousands of families each year. Isn’t it time you got in on the fun?
Perch Tales is a periodic newsletter for Instructors in the Connecticut Aquatic Resources Education (CARE) program.
