Fishing Workshop

Scott Thomas shared his love of fishing with 19 youth and adults at the Mahnomen Area Service Center on Sunday, February 18th from 2-3:45 pm.  The group started by identifying fish and then moved to creating jigs.  Scott Thomas demonstrated how to attach marabou, flashabou, bucktail and feathers of all sorts to a hook.  Each participant made at least one original jig and many completed more!  The event ended with a gummy worm bait throwing relay game with “Swedish Fish” and “Goldfish” as the catch of the day. 

Special thanks to Scott Thomas for providing the materials and expertize for this fishing session!
