First Fish Certificate Available Online
Proud parents or relatives can now present a First Fish Certificate to a young angler to commemorate that memorable feat, according to Frank Jezioro, Director of the West Virginia Division of Natural Resources.
“The First Fish Certificate is designed to recognize that special first catch by young anglers,” said Jezioro. The First Fish Certificate is available on the DNR Web site and can be completed by relatives or friends of the successful young angler.
The online certificate is a colorful, tangible way to record a youngster’s first fish. “The certificate is easily completed with the angler’s name, species of fish, and date and place of catch,” said Jezioro. The certificate can then be printed at home at no cost. The First Fish Certificate can be found online at www.wvdnr.gov/Fishing/First_Fish.shtm .
