UNH's Coolest Courses [Part 3]: Fly Fishing and the American Experience

This week’s coolest course is Fly Fishing and the American Experience. Imagine yourself knee deep in a babbling river, wearing those crazy gigantic overalls that fly fishermen wear. The wind ripples through the Autumn trees, and a glistening silver fish leaps among the white churning of the brook. How many other times do you earn college credit for a sport or hobby? (Note: we’ll try to answer that with this series.) This course is offered in the Fall semester.

As far as workload goes, this one seems more formidable than the previous courses in this series. It is marked as writing intensive. Apparently there’s more too it than fishing field trips. It’s going to look into fishing art literature, biology, and pop culture and so on. We’ve got a great state to be outdoors in, as noted in this series previously. If you’re already big on outdoor rec, throw this one into a schedule before you leave this school. If not, try it anyway for the sake of something new. I’m sure it’s way better than any fishing app out there.

This one will satisfy your humanities discovery requirement.

If you’ve had a good experience with other courses, go ahead and drop the course name and a quick explanation for why it belongs in the series in a comment. If you disagree with the selection, or had a bad experience, I’d like to hear about that too.
