Round table discussions with NAIFC Pro-Staff after the seminar

This NAIFC Pro Staff Seminar program is geared toward educating new amateur fishers to the world of tournaments and the best products in the industry. The seminar starts off Friday night before the tournament. After the seminar the teams will be paired with NAIFC Pro Staff in smaller groups. These group tutorials will include specific techniques on how to catch fish on the lake of the tournament. The teams will be invited to pre-fish on Lake Thompson at 8:00am Saturday morning. The Pro Staff will fish with the amateur teams demonstrating techniques needed to compete at the tournament level. The fishers will feel less pressure to compete and will be on the fast track to becoming skilled anglers, eventually becoming teachers to their friends and fishers in the local community.
