The format of the course is relatively open. Attendees are not obliged to attend EVERY session (although ALL attendees are required to attend the Water Safety and Bush /Camp safety session on the first afternoon). Of an evening (or early in the morning), attendees are encouraged to go fishing to put their new found knowledge to work. In addition, experienced club members are on hand to take small groups (of two or three) on fishing excursions each evening. A record of the catch is kept.
