Hello, Blog Readers!
As you guys know, for years I have been trying to convey my passion for the sport of fishing to the general public and fellow anglers alike. For that reason, there has always been an "educational perspective" added to any social media involving the name Extreme Philly Fishing. In other words, I was never just about going out there and catching fish. Exploring new venues and catching different Species of fish was only one portion of it!
As you can see, the most important aspect of my social media was and has always been education. Thus, little by little, I felt an urge of creating a series of online fishing lectures that would be open for everyone out there; for people of all ages and backgrounds.
Today I'm very excited to present to you folks my "Fishing 101" lecture series project on my YouTube Channel. Before anything else, here are a couple pointers to this series:
1. The Fishing 101 Lecture Series is not a collection of practical fishing videos. In other words, there is absolutely no fishing in it. As the name implies, it's a didactic series of online lectures. Think of it as an online class on the basics of fishing! If you are looking for regular fishing videos, feel free to browse throughout my YouTube Channel.
2. There will be a total of 12 fishing lessons, which will cover from fishing ideologies to fishing techniques, fishing gear technicalities, the biology of fishes, rules and regulations in the sport, etc. By the end of this series, the viewer should be pro-efficient with the basics of the sport of fishing, despite of age and location.
3. Lectures will be released on a weekly basis, for a total of 3 months. They will be uploaded on the YouTube Channel on 3 a.m. EST every Monday. Each lecture will have a length similar to a college level class: between 50 to 80 minutes. Make sure to not skip any lectures if you want to maximize your learning process!
4. Feel free to leave any questions you may have on the comment section of the lecture videos. They will be answered in a matter of 1 to 4 days.
The first lecture can be accessed here. It focuses on the Philosophy and two main ideologies behind the sport of fishing.
Before watching it, let me remind you that this lecture series is not for everyone out there! As pointed out in the video itself and in its description, this Fishing 101 project is just like an online course in fishing. In other words, each lecture will be between 50 to 80 minutes long, just like a regular 3-4 credit college level class. Summarizing...if you think that this lecture series is not for you; in other words, if you are not seeking knowledge or anything didactic, then don't waste your time watching it. On the other hand, if you want to become more pro-efficient with the basics of fishing and more intelligent in the field, I highly advise you to watch each minute of every video.
I hope you folks enjoy this educational project,
Best of luck to all of us,
Long Days and Pleasant Nights,
